Are there certain ingredients in beers or certain brewing circumstances that cause some beers to pour excessive foam? Is there something in the recipe that could be changed to avoid excessive foam in the finished product? Or is there another problem?
I've seen this question posted many times and I know all the answers by heart BUT...now it's happening to me. It is like the friction of the beer traveling though the beer line causes the CO2 to come out of solution.
I have an APA that will not pour without yielding half foam. Now here is my setup.. I have 2 taps with 8 ft. of beer line on one side and 10 ft. on the other. Both pour this beer foamy and flat. I've also tried with a cheap plastic cobra fitting. I've changed pressure, changed temperature, de-gassed, changed out all the fittings, etc.
I force carb at high psi 30 for one day and then burp and set the pressure to 14 to finish. This has worked very well for as long as I've been serving beer. BUT not with this cursed beer. Any comments?
