Serving Belgian beers from a keg
Hey all, I was just wondering if anybody has some good advice for serving beers of Belgian-level carbonation from a keg.

I'm thinking that if I just use a long enough piece of 3/16 inch tubing coming off the keg, it should naturally restrict the flow and allow me to serve highly carbonated beers that won't come out all-foam.

Does anyone do this, and are there any general guidelines as far as how much tube I would need? I serve using Shirron taps.

Thanks, Sean

Yes, I've been doing it for many years. You'll need between 8 to 10 feet of the 3/16 tubing (to balance the system to the level of carbonation you use) and I push the beer at 15lbs of CO2. I usually force carbonate the keg at 36F with 30lbs CO2 for three days then back off the CO2 to 15lbs for another 3 days.
