Beer brewed is style 15A (BJCP)
beer is stored in corney keg in kegerator at temp of about 38F
sanitation was and is strictly adhered to.
hose from keg to faucet 5 1/2 feet long.
faucet is full open when pouring
after purging the air out of the tank from secondary by hooking the keg up to CO2 tank I chilled the keg for two days. I then “rapid charged” or forced carbonated the keg by shaking it vigorously for about 5 min with the PSI turned up to 30. I then let it sit in kegerator for a week. I do this for all my beers in fact the 15B which I have on tap as well was done the same way and is pouring fine-appropriate CO2 for style. However the German Wheat is coming out of the tap like a glass of foam slowly settling down but the beer seems a bit flat. Any ideas what I can do before I disconnect and force CO2 again? I did purge some of the pressure off and dispensing the beer out at 10-11 PSI and I checked the keg for leaks and did not notice any. Suggestions anyone who kegs to look at?
Beer is a 5 gal mini mash, basically a extract the added grains were to add some additional protenes and a little texture. Used all German malts.
No the CO2 was not left at 30psi but lowered to draw off at around 10psi
