My NEIPA has been on gas for a week now. The keg is dispensing the beer with 95% foam. The temperature of the kegerator is 34°f and the tower is fan cooled so temperature is the not the issue. The pressure was set for 14 psi and the dispensing hose is a standard 3/16 in ID beverage hose. Because I like to carbonate the beer on the higher side, I use a longer hose in this case it’s 10 feet. After several days of nothing but foam I decided to try a couple of different things. The first was to change the beverage line to a 15 foot hose. This did absolutely nothing proving that hose length was not the issue. The next thing I tried was to actually increase the keg pressure to 18 psi knowing that it would probably at best do nothing and in fact this was the case. I then decided to try one last experiment. I bled the head space to near nothing and decided to see if the higher pressure in solution would push the beer through the dispenser without foam. The beer for all practical purposes did not flow anecdotally verifying that it’s the head pressure that propels the beer not the CO2 in solution. In other words if the head pressure is near zero then no matter how carbonated the beer, it won’t dispense or at least it won’t dispense at a reasonable rate. However, I did learn that if the head pressure was reduced but not all the way, not only did it flow, albeit more slowly, but the foam was acceptable, perhaps only 10%. This is good news because now I know how to dispense a highly carbonated beer with minimal foam but the down side is I have to turn off the manifold pressure and partially bleed the head space while I pour and then turn it back on again between each pour. I would guess that many of you have solved this problem so I’m all ears.
