Title: Party Pig
Post by: smitty on April 11, 2010, 06:21:34 pm
Good Afternoon everyone.  First off hello, I am new not only to this site, but forums in general. 

Forgive me if this topic/question has been brought up before, but I've recently branched out into kegging (sort of), with the Party Pig.  Which I enjoy thoroughly, however, I'm getting a lot of foam/head when I pour a pint.  Does anyone have any similar experiences or suggestions for correcting this?

Thanks

Make sure to follow the Party Pigs priming method, not the recipe.  If I remember right the Pig uses less priming sugar.  I don't know if this is the problem, but it would be the easiest to fix for the next batch.

If you are "bottle" conditioning in a Pig, use 1/3 - 1/2 a cup of priming sugar per 5 gal. and you should be fine.  Since you're not splitting your batch up into bottles you need less priming sugar to achieve the same level of carbonation.
