Pressure question

(1/2) > >>

hang5lngbd:
I just recently upgraded to kegging and am loving it.
My first beer on the keg (Amber) was at high pressure, lots of foam and I had to be careful not to spill. My IPA, the second beer on my kegerator, comes out quite slowly, even after the sediment. It is still carbonated and tastes great.

I am wondering where the difference comes in to play.
I feel like I did something wrong on the second keg.

FACTS:
first beer poured fast and foamy
second beer pours slow but nothing wrong with it
connected to the same CO2 and beer connectors
second beer has been carbonating for 1 week
first beer poured fast as soon as I put it on
CO2 line is split to 2 kegs in the kegerator

Any info would be great. I want to learn!

Mark G:
How long are your beer lines? And what pressure are you serving at?

hang5lngbd:
The pressure reads 20.

(20 of how much per what I don't know)
I don't have a way to set the pressure, only a way to read it as far as I can tell.

We're you careful not to get hops in the keg, or have the hops in a fine mess bag if you dry hopped? I have plugged the dip tube and also plugged the poppet with hops. My solution is to now rack with a paint strainer fine mesh nylon bag over the racking cane.
