    Got carbonation in my Corny Keg

    Hi all.

    I am am new to this so be patient with me.

    I have been brewing for afew years now, and just tried my first Corny Kegging.

    Although my IPA that I kegged is great tasting and a very frothy, decent, head on it , the actuall brew has a flat apperance. No trailing bubbles in the glass....hmmm

    Has anyone ever experienced this.????

    I am running about 8 to 10 psi...

    Any suggestions

    Put it in one of the Sam Adams glasses or another one with the little bit of laser etching on the bottom. If it tastes good and is carbonated, you've done your job.
    On deck: a clone of Carolina Beer Co's Rye Stout, clone of Breckenridge's Vanilla Porter,
    Primary: Schwarzbier
    Secondary: Dortmunder, Hopweizen
    Keg Conditioning: Dunkelweizen, Roggenbier, Okto, Ord. Bitter
    On tap: Alt, Hefeweizen, Cigar City Maduro clone, Mild
    Bottled: Mead, Quad Rajet, Granola Bar Braggot

    Too much of everything is just enough.

    trailing bubbles come from etching or a dirty glass
    My posts are definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.

    Did some one mention a dirty glass. a dirty glass will kill head retention faster than a newly greased guillotine.

    Sorry, we can't do much about making sense out of what the goalie said.
