  • Air in beer lines; after sitting for a day.

    I'm noticing lately that my first pour of the day always comes out extra foaming because there seems to be some air/gas that collect in the beer line after sitting for 24 hours. Why is this happening? I don't have any leak but air/gas is making it into the beer line. Pressure too low, too high? Any ideas?

    It's because the pressure is incorrect. Could be too high or too low - depends on your beer and temp.

    What beer are you serving?
    What is your second pour temp? (Don't know what that means? Read this )
    Do you live at an elevation over 1000'? If so, what is your elevation?

      Most likely the pressure is too low. Search this forum for flashlight test
      Malt is the soul of beer... and yeast gives it life..
