Using a 4' line with picnic tap. Beer pours fine but afterwards it appears the beer in the line is moving up and into the keg. Next pour has to then displace air in line. What could be happening here?

Fairly Low. (Slow pour) Using a cartridge injector.

Since beer line is flexible, some of the C02 will come out of solution as the pressure slightly expands the tubing. The thicker the wall of the tubing, then the less this will happen.
