I extended my beer line to 10' to cut down on foaming, but now there is air sitting in the line.
I read that it shouldn't be left to droop, so I coiled it on top of the keg. It has pockets of air 2-3 inches long throughout.
Is there something simple I'm missing here?

Oh yeah, it is a Sanyo 4912 with two tap tower.

I'm sorry. I forgot to mention that my concern is because the beer is pouring very foamy.

That CO2 can cause foaming. I'd say your temp is too warm or the serving pressure is too low for the carbonation level of your beer.

3/16"

I lowered the temp, and I'm gonna check it later.
I believe I was getting bad temp readings, and keeping it too warm.
We'll see.
