comment Force-carbonated Homebrew Keg Foaming
We finally got around to replacing the stock beer lines that came with the kegerator with longer lines. We used about 10ft of 3/16" PVC line on each tap and both now pour perfectly at 14psi at a good carbonation level. Thanks for your help!

I purged the CO2, let it sit for 10+ mins, then pulled the tap and it did not push itself out. So I'm pretty sure it is not overcarbonated. I reconnected the CO2 at 8psi and now it comes out slowly but less foamy than before. A commercial keg hooked up to the other tap pours perfectly after the first foam is drawn out, due to not having a tower cooler. The beer is also starting to get more carbonated than before. I think we'll leave it sit at 10psi since the holiday party is over and see if it gets more carbonated. Party was still a success, people got to taste it!

Thanks for all the helpful info. Some things like getting new beer lines will take longer so I will try those last.

Thanks, and that might work for people to at least taste the homebrew. But it is very flat after the foam subsides, which I don't know if that is because the foam is from it being overcarbonated and going flat because of the foam, or undercarbonated and the foam is from some other problem.
