I would greatly appreciate some advice here.
I just got a 5gal corny keg and am force carbing for the first time.
The coldest that I am able to get the beer in my keg down to is 52' F.
I am trying to carb an IPA.
Beersmith tells me to have the pressure at ~20psi @ ~52' F. It has been sitting at this pressure for about 10 days.
I am trying to pour a beer to test it for carbonation (plus I'm thirsty
) and I am getting 90% foam. The resulting beer in the glass is just as flat as you would expect it to be after all that foaming.
I am using ~6 feet of 3/8" beer line with a cobra tap.
I am serving at 5 - 10 psi (i've tried everything in between).
So, what can I try to get this beer to relax and quit foaming?
Does it matter whether the cobra tap sits above or below the keg?
I took it off of the 20psi, vented the pressure from the keg, and then immediately put the co2 back on at 10psi for serving. Does it need time to rest?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
