Your question really depends on your serving temp. & carbonation level + head pressure, but somewhere in the 8-12psi range should be just fine.patap said:hi can anyone tell me what the right kpa is for running a keg i know you put it up full to get the gas in to the beer but after that what do u run it at ?
Alas, kegging and PSI settings can be hard to figure, but they don't need to be. Here's the rules I've always followed, and haven't had a single problem yet:mrkeeg said:How much difference does the type of tap make?
The LBS recomended 5/8" (!!) tubing for a short line from a keg... but the fellow said that's what they used for the small "thumb" taps.
My taps are for soda pop... the beer comes into the back of the tap and separates around a cylindrical pyramid... then comes back together as it enters the channel with the pull-tap stopper. I assume if someone has seen this, they will know what I mean, and otherwise you will have no clue.. .*lol* I may try to post a picture this eve. Anyway.. it seems that this setup may create undue turbulence and thus perhaps my foam problem?
Thanks for any thoughts,
