    Very high pressure in keg and lots of foam.

    I force carb if there is room in the keezer with the set and forget. If there in no room or if the beer needs to condition I use priming sugar. I believe I have a issue and should seek help, If I am under 300 beers on tap or in bottles I feel that I am running low and need to start brewing ASAP.

    Very high pressure in keg and lots of foam.

    After the foam settles the beer taste great! It is a cynic surly clone and was really looking forward to this beer. I will try to bleed off the pressure once it is down to serving temp. If it finished fermenting in the keg, will it affect it any?
