Hi, I'm sure this has been discussed but I can't see it.
I have a keg that is completely full of foam - when I try to pour a glass its ALL foam.
Tried degassing but that doesn't seem to work.
Any ideas what caused it and how to resolve it?
Thanks

Over carbonated is the only thing that can cause that, chill it down as cold as you can then release some pressure.
Only other thing that comes to mind is too much no rinse sanitiser before transferring.

The keg isn't actually full of foam, the beer just foams up when you pour it. This is caused by eithert the keg pressure is too high, the beer line is too short for the desired pressure or te keg temperature is too high. Have a look at a CO2 chart to find an appropriate temp and pressure for your beer, then work out the length of beer line that suits.
