Hi all, newbie to site and to home beer dispensing too really.
i have a setup in my shed, yes I’m a sheddie, I have 2 taps with jssmooth and carlsberg running through a maxi cooler.
i serve the smooth with 70/30 gas and the lager with co2, the smooth doesn’t play up hardly at all but the carlsberg tends to froth badly lately. I assume it’s because the weather is hotter now than in December when I started and didn’t have any problems. I had the gas set to around 24psi in winter and the last keg I had in early June was a nightmare. The temp in the shed is probably around 28 -30 degrees now so I turned the gas down to around 15psi but that didn’t help. After wasting a lot of beer as the keg stated to empty it started to settle down and was ok on 18psi. I have just tapped a new keg again yesterday and it’s the same problem.
i turn the gas off and disconnect the coupler when not in use and it takes a lot of wasted beer to get it going again next time. I have read loads of sites and just get more confused as to what the pressure should be.
Any help would be great.
