Fellas I have a wheat beer on tap at the moment. Trouble is when I pour it Im just getting foam.
I presured at 60 KPA and was carbonated in my usual way being chilled to 4 degs and left conected to the gas @ 200 kpa for 3 days.

Any thoughts.

There's too much co2 in it. Or it's too warm for your serving pressure. Cool it down or fizz it off or turn your serving pressure down.

Mate i just had a dunkelweizen that is FLAT and cant get it to carb up.

WTF is it with wheats at the moment?

When I've had overcarbed beers I've just vented the keg over a couple of days, you could always bring it to room temperature briefly to help it de-gas. Otherwise, it might be a slight infection? Does it taste right?

Oh and I cleaned the line last night to make sure theres no obsticles to disturb the beer on its way to the tap.

It comes out like ice cream and I dont think its over carbonated because after leaving it sitting for 5 mins it tastes flat.

Buggered if know.

Brisfox how long has it been in the keg? In the past I've found that a beer can kind of settle in after a week or two - when previously it seemed overcarbed.
good luck

Ive had the same before with some of my lagers but they have settled down after a few days.
This has been in the fridge for just over a week now and it just wont settle down.

How long is your beer line?
It doesn't matter of course if you have flow control taps.

OVER CARBONATED!

I run my at 200 for 24 hours and they are close enough, come up over the nek day or 2 at serving pressure... better to under carb than over IMO.

Take the gas post off, bleed the keg, serve from it at a dribble - thus using the c02 in the beer to serve and getting it out of the over carbed keg..... bleed it and bleed or dribble serve...

It will come good.

i also do the 24 hour 200kpa carb, Then pouring pressure... SOmetimes the first days beers are a tad undercarbed, but equalises out over a few days when left at pouring pressure.
