Foam Issues

Tue Jun 10, 2014 9:04 pm

Just got my kegerator up and running Monday and I'm having a little bit of a foam issue. I've done a lot of reading and found that most foam issues come from draft lines that are too short or a tower that isn't cooled, but I don't believe either of those are my issues.

Here's my setup:

- 2 Perlick SS forward-seal faucets with 4 1/8" shanks through a refrigerator door
- 10' of 3/16" draft line
- One regulator supplying a manifold

Right now, I've got two kegs hooked up, a corney with a homebrew White IPA and a commercial keg of Bell's Oberon. The Sanke keg is attached to the system through a Sanke to ball-lock adapter (http://www.amazon.com/Sankey-Ball-Quick ... roduct_top).

So, on the commercial keg, I get 1/3 of a glass of foam every time, but it's perfectly carbonated on the homebrew keg.

Based on what I've told you, can you guys think of anything I should try?

How much pressure are you pushing?

How are the beer lines running? Coiled or just laying wherever?

12 PSI. They're semi-coiled, coiled around the top of the keg with enough slack to allow the door to open.
