  • New Keezer Lots of Foam

    Posted by William on December 12, 2019 at 11:22 pm

    I just finished building my first keezer and just started using it, but I am getting a lot of foam/head in my beer. Any idea what could cause this? I have two beers on tap and it’s happening to both.

    I actually carbonated it slowly at 10PSI because I was going to be out of town for two weeks, so I kept it at 10

    You said it’s new right? How long are your beer lines? Short beer lines can cause that. Most people shoot for pretty long ones. Mine are all 6 feet.

    oh no….that might be it. They’re probably only like 2 maybe 3 feet? Damn it.

    That’s almost certainly it then. That’s way too short for the beer lines. Mine are 8 feet which works very well.

    No worries man, it’s not as big of a deal as it sounds. Beer lines are super cheap. I got 50 feet on it on Amazon prime for 20 bucks – https://amzn.to/2YGP5iA

    Thanks! Just ordered new lines and got enough to do 8′ per line. I’ll let you know if it works!

    Got the new lines and cut them to just under 8′ each. Got everything installed and will have a pint this afternoon! Here’s hoping!
