two days at 210 kpa cold kegs and beer looks good just the gas trap in the gun!!!
What size beer line from the keg to tap and how long?

I'm guessing the serving pressure is too low for the gassing level. I would try and push the serving pressure up to at least 80 to 90 kpa to stop the CO2 coming out of solution.

No problems. If you find the extra serving pressure fixes up the CO2 in the line, but gives you a foamy pour try and add a lot more length to the beer line. I would start at 2m and if it pours too slow chop off 100mm at a time until you are happy. Depending on the beer line internal diameter, standard line is best around 1.5m.

Under here there is a couple of good discussions on balancing a kegging system.

Hope this helps, and enjoy the kegs :D

Until you get longer beer line, holding the tap as high above the keg as possible can also help with foaming problems at higher pressure.
