Default Carbonation help!

So here's my scenario.
I took the advice of my LHBS owner and burst carved (30psi for ten minutes while rocking back and forth) on Monday night. I bled the keg and then let is sit at 8 psi overnight. Beer was pouring really foamy and was cloudy. I let it sit for another 24 hours and had same results. I took it off the gas completely on Wednesday afternoon and let it sit until friday(just over 48 hours). Poured another pint with the same results. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Is it possible there is something wrong with the beer? This is my first batch. Thanks in advance. Oh ya, beer was cooled to 38 degrees before kegging and has been at that temp or thereabouts ever since.

Time and patience will help - also depending on your tower setup (if you have a kegerator) the temperature difference between the beer and the tap head will cause foam. Generally - pouring 4 or 5 pints at the same time will cause the foam to settle a little on the last pours. There are quite a few posts on the forum related to this and how people have dealt with it.
