I just recently had a foam monster that i couldnt stop on a keg...
I tryed everything then I think I finally figured it out.

CO2 was sneeking into the down tube at the top of the keg!

I havent taken it apart yet, but i think im gonna find that the "seal" at the top of the downtube, Inside the keg, is leaking so CO2 is getting in there and causing big time foam.

Wierd.. anyone else seen this trick?
Is this possible?

Walt...do you mean air leaking into the out tube? I had an air leak at the nipple on my faucet and that caused some serious foam.

Yea... into the out tube..
I took it all apart and i found the problem...
Although there is a little gasket at the top, and i thought that might be the problem, turns out my downtube was all full of hops at the top from dry hopping..
Snicker..

Duh on me.;>
