  1. There are many things to check that could be responsible, you haven’t said whether it is bitter or lager extra cold etc. It would be better for him to call out tech services in the meantime he could make sure his glasses are ok and there is no bloom etc.

    also to check he is using the right type of glasses as you say sometimes it is ok and at other times it isn’t. The right type of glass meaning the nucleated glass types. The etched design at the bottom of the glass giving bubble rise thus retaining the head. Some glasses are meant for ordinary lager and others are for extra cold etc. His dispense technician would be better able to explain all this in detail.

  2. We had a good one in the same vein.All CO2 top pressure products going flat at the end of the tin.The system is a compressed air feed to the flojets with a CO2 backup from the same cylinder that feeds the tins.Turned out that the switchover valve was faulty allowing air into the CO2 line.Rare but worth checking.

    Never come across that certainly is rare would have checked the quality of the Co2 first, have found a lot of air to be present in Co2 bottles from some dodgy suppliers before now. Good one!
