John Smiths dispensing slow

Hello,

When running Carlsberg and John Smiths on 70/30 i noticed that the john smiths was dispensing very slowly however the carslberg was alot faster almost perfect in fact. I still got a great pint out of both.
The setup was via a flash cooler and lines ( Not a a Python) and a Mixed gas regulator.

I checked all the lines for holes or bubbles showing and didnt find any leaks ect, I also checked the regulator pressure and it hadnt dropped.

Apologies as I am a newbie to all this 🙂

  1. Hi Harticus

    Are we talking outside bar? Has it been working ok and has now started play up? First thing to check if it hasn’t been used for a while would be the Nozzle/diffuser check the holes to see if they are not blocked they should be cleaned every time you use it, or perhaps the gas line to the coupler is kinked or failing that if you have a flow regulater fully open it, and give the lines a good clean it may be blocked. Does this help?

  2. Hi nicoteenrush,

    Thanks for the reply, Yes this is for an outside bar, Too be honest I feel i had checked all these too and it looked fine. Without sounding rude could it possibly be caused by anything else or is that pretty much it?

    Thanks Chap

    That is pretty much it. It can be difficult to guess what your setup is.The gas pressure is 35psi yes? and the Carlsberg pours fast enough. I assume you’ve tried it without the nozzle on and it’s the same. If you just have the standard freeflow tap try it without the flow control, remove it completely. Is it a font or Tbar?

  4. It is 35psi yes, thanks for all your advice, will take it on board and double check all those possible symptons next time round

    Could I also ask your opinion on real ale for an outside bar. for eg. i have a Birthday party coming up soon and have used ale before on a stillage. I set it up the night before but didnt spile and tap untill about 1 hour before everyone came in. The ale was fine and no-one said anything however after talking to other people there are certain times when you should spile and then tap it.
    When should i spile and then tap it and what should i be looking for?

    Thanks again

  5. You should really tap and vent as soon as you can. However the micro’s these days will supply you with bright beer, where they have filtered it for you.

    That is probably what you had last time depending what it is you can use it pretty quick. Otherwise if you use normal cask ale that can take 24 to 48 hrs to clear down, depending what it is.

    Your supplier will be able to advise you on the local brews.
