Trying to get a good pour-Pliny Clone(All grain) Kegged
« on: March 27, 2013, 05:44:11 AM »
I've got a Pliny Clone kegged and carbonated @ 11psi, I have 8' of 1/4" line and am getting too much foam, I've reduced to 9 psi, and still the same...  I don't figure I should have a longer line, but will going to 3/16" help with this???  I've read everything in the forums before posting but I figure I'll ask...


Thanks in advance,

Jason

Your problem is the 1/4" beer line.
It only provides about 1/3 the restriction of 3/16" line.
So, at 11 PSI you'd need about 16 feet of 1/4" line.
Try 8" of 3/16", if the pour is too slow, cut off a foot and try again.
For my system, I have found that 7" of 3/16" at 10-12 PSI with a temp of ~40 degrees works best.
