Not Sure if this falls under the same category as excessive foam or something like that - but here’s my issue.
I have a picnic tap (5ft line - basic setup from kegconnection) and whenever I go to pour, for a split second I get regular beer - then for about 1.3 seconds I get pure foam before reverting to normal beer again. Problem is that once there’s foam in the glass, its impossible to complete the pour without a mess.
I have actually kinda fixed the situation - I pour for the first 2 seconds into a plastic cup, then continue with my regular pour and then after a couple of minutes I can top off from the plastic cup that has now settled.
I have noticed that when I start to pour, the line doesn’t seem to be full of beer - is that the problem or is that normal?
I also have noticed that when I’m done with my pour, I can see air in the line like some of the beer is going back to the keg.
Any info to point me in a direction would be appreciated - I used to think that I was over-carbed but even with pressure down to about 3, it still happens.
I’m close to getting the ok on getting a real tap, but this is kinda souring me on the whole setup.
