I'm currently a Java programmer. I am doing high-performance server work, Swing client work, and game design. I've developed in multiple languages on multiple platforms. I've worked seriously in the past with PHP, ASP, Unix C/C++, MS SQL Server, and MySQL.

I take a very direct approach to programming. I don't bow to convention simply because it is. Remember that DOS was a standard at one point. Remember that Windows still is a standard. Does it work, yes, I suppose, most of the time it does. I would build it much differently.

comment Why am I getting foam in my keg line when dispensing?
thanks for taking a look. I'll likely get my equipment on Monday and know if this was the issue by mid-week next week. If this is the issue and @jalynn2 hasn't added it as an answer, then I'll do it myself. Otherwise, I'll buy more hose. :)

@jalynn2: I flagged your comment here because it should be turned into an answer. I am ordering parts to cool the tower and will know for sure this weekend, I hope! I cannot imagine that I should be lengthening lines which are already sufficiently long for maintenance.

The beer is directly below the tap. I believe I have a 3/16" line, so it seems I need 1.8 PSI per foot. That means I really should have at least five feet of beer line to maintain at least 10 PSI in the keg. But when the tap is only a foot and a half above the keg, do we really need this distance? I guess just to have pressure....

My lines are about 3 feet long and are contained within the kegerator. So they should be at the same temperature as the rest of the system, which is close. I do not have an exact temperature control but about 36 degrees. What do you mean that my system may be out of balance? Out of balance how?

comment How long do I have to finish a keg once it's been tapped?
Most places in the USA this is called "Beer Gas". It was recommended that I do not need this except with heavier beers like stouts and porters which need the additional pressure.

Was this after it was tapped? Or between being kegged and being tapped?

Pressurizing the keg appropriately basically means connecting it to a 15 psi CO2 supply and allowing the pressure to equalize? How long have you kept a keg this way without it going bad?
