A 10-Point Plan for Kegs (Without Being Overwhelmed)

Bring Your Beer Right to you with a Beer Keg Tap

Whenever family and friends have a party or go out for a picnic, they usually have beer kegs available. People who are thirsty drink a lot and so it is very cost effective to have a keg in the available since it also saves you a lot of money. The device that allows you to release the beer into your drinking cup from the keg is a keg tap. It is easy to use a keg tap but you must be careful not to waste beer if you are not sure how to do it correctly. Foam can be released from the keg tap if not done properly, and it can go all over your face or your body. It is not as easy as you see people doing it.

The release of the beer is regulated by the keg tap. With the use of a lever and with the actions of pulling and pressing it, the beer is released. You can get you beer when the pressure is released and it pushes the beer up to your glass. Keg taps work like switches which you can put on or off or it can also be an open-close switch.

To minimize the foam it creates when pouring, place the beer keg in a steady position for a short while; the beer keg should be directly in front of you. The foam builds up when the keg is transported especially when there is too much movement. Let it stay for a while and place the keg where you plan to serve the beer to minimize the foam. It is harder to tap with the cap or seal so you should remove it. Since pros know how not to put the beer at risk they don’t remove the cap or seal. If you will do it, you need to play it safe.

A portable keg system can be tapped with CO2. Pressure is received by the keg in a single unit pump and tap combination, which is called party pump. IN this type, the keg and the beer keg tap are separated. You attach the pump, and the faucet must be opened so that the pressure in the keg is released. You can release beer by applying air pressure to the keg by pumping and pushing the lever or the tap handle.

When beer is mixed with air, it begins to lose its flavor and this is the reason why a pony keg or a portable keg should be consumed in a single day when the beer already loses its flavor. Traditional keg uses an on and off valve. This traditional keg does not need air pressure since it works using gravity. The traditional keg valve simply needs to be opened or closed to get your beer.
