I have one beer line in my setup that is sputtering and foaming on pours.
I have diagnosed what is happening – what I see is that, just after I pour a beer, bubbles are coming into my beer line right where the black liquid (“OUT”) disconnect meets the 3/16 id beer line, below the hose clamp. I have a 4 tap system and this happens regardless of which of the 4 tap lines (disconnect included) I use to tap to this particular keg. No matter which of the four lines I use…bubbles float into the beer line from the OUT disconnect.
BUT, the other lines, when connected to their designated kegs…no bubbles. It makes me think this is a problem with this keg’s beer OUT port.
I have replaced the little black o-ring on the OUT port of the keg in question but without success. I will not use this keg again but I have 1/2 a keg of good beer in there. How to rescue it from these shitty pours? Bummed because this yummy beer is suffering from less than ideal pours.
Thanks in advance.
