pouring problem

Postby Shanus » Wednesday Mar 04, 2009 11:01 am

i had my beer just right.
then i was aloud to put my second fridge in the lounge room so i got my keg from down stairs and run in up stairs to my other fridge pulled the tap and lines out of my down stairs frige and put them in my up stairs frides so systems the same just different fridge
i left the keg for a day to settle cause i knew it got shaken up when moving it
but it now is pouring to much head and tastes flat (sings it is over carb) this is my first beer in a keg
how would my keg have became over carb?
whats the best way to fix it?

The only thing I can think of is that if you disconnected then reconnected everything, you might have a slight leak in the system and it's pulling air through which might cause the frothing. Double check all your line connections.
