  • Wild Beer Even At Low PSI

    Have a Danby DKC645BLS - So ran through a keg of Sierra Nevada with no issues minus about ~3 seconds of foam before lines cool down. Just hooked up keg of Sam Adams Noble Pils about a few days ago. Wild beer like crazy. Keg temp is 38, beer at tap temp is 39. PSI is set to 10. Tried all PSI levels down to 5-6 and still wild beer. Only time I can get a decent pour is by shutting off regulator. After which I get a perfect pour for about ~5-6 beers until flow slows down. Could this be a bad reg or bad seals somewhere?

    It could be bad reg or seal. I think your PSI is too low. Have you done the "flashlight" test, found on Scott's Blog? Not knowing your elevation, I can't tell you what psi to set.
    I cool my tower with Beer.

      Your post should read "Wild pours especially at low PSI". When you do not supply enough pressure, co2 escapes out of solution. Agree with performing the flashlight test.
