Howdy gents and gals, my Andale pluto has been amazing for about 4 years now, however recently it all of a sudden started leaking out the end slightly, so I backed off the nut which reduces the spring force and the leak stopped. But after this it no longer had a smooth, laminar flow and was jetting out considerably as a thin fast stream causing heaps of foaming during the pour. I dropped the keg pressure right back and was able to (just) dispense beer for the day.
I then bought a replacement seal kit from LHBS but the seals, stripped it down and gave it a good PBW soak, replaced the seals (lubed up) but for the life of me still cannot get it to pour as laminar and smooth flow which was the beauty of the thing. See the attached photo the stream was normally the same diameter as the gun outlet hole and not a thinner jet as you can see.
Anyone encountered this and have suggestions? I'm 99.99% sure I have the thing reassembled correctly and there are no blockages or restrictions in the olive or my liquid disconnect end. Same problem on multiple kegs etc etc.
Kegs: T1 DIPA (Chilled), T2 Altbier, T3 DIPA (No Chilled), T4 LCBA Fermenting: La Sirene yeast starter Cubed/Planned: Urban Pale Ale, Hoppy Lager, Teninch Dampfbier, Old Melb Ale, Hightail Ale, APA
