first off i finally joined and i want to thank everyone for such and awsome fourm and great info!! :rockin: so anyway.. i keged, carbed, than consumed and the beer was tasty but i was having a hard time getting it to server with no foam, and i thought the beer was over carbed, so i burped it and let it sit over nite with no co2 on., in burping i think some o2 might have gotten into the keg casue you know how the beer goes backwards and back into the keg, well there was air bubbles in it. so i let it sit over night then the next day hooked it up and the flavor was a lil diff. like akaline or something. so im jsut wondering if that could have maybe changed the taste of me beer at all. the hoppyness has also seemed to dim a lil bit. thanks !!

ps. i wouldnt think something could make the flavor change over night..

Did you let all the pressure out of the keg?

There's a few things you can do if you are getting too much foam.

1 drop the pressure down until the beer just barely flows

2 go with a longer hose

3 go with a small diameter hose 1/4 vs 3/8

4 be sure and open the tap all the way.

partially opening the tap creates turbulence which creates more foam.
