Getting Creative With Taps Advice

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. Kegs are very ideal to those who drink a lot which is also cost effective and money saving. IF you have a keg tap, this device will allow you to release the beer into your drinking cup from the keg. 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. Improper use of the keg tap can let foam go all over your face or all over you. You would see people doing this but it is not as easy as it looks.

The keg tap regulates the release of beer. This uses a lever and through pulling and pressing it, the beer is released. It works by releasing the pressure, which in turn pushes the beer up and into a glass or a container. Keg taps work like switches which you can put on or off or it can also be an open-close switch.

You can minimize the foam created when pouring by placing the beer keg in a steady position for a short while. The foam builds up when the keg is transported especially when there is too much movement. In order to minimize the foal, place the keg where you plan to serve the beer and let it stay for a while. Remove the cap or seal since it will be harder to tap with it. However, the pros do not remove the cap or seal because they will not put the beer at risk like you will. If you will do it, you need to play it safe.

Tapping with CO2 is done with portable keg systems. Pressure is received by the keg in a single unit pump and tap combination, which is called party pump. The beer keg tap is separated from the keg. You attach the pump, and the faucet must be opened so that the pressure in the keg is released. Air pressure is applied to the keg by pumping and when the lever is pushed, which is the tap handle, beer is released.

A pony keg or portable beer keg should be consumed in one day because the beer loses its flavor once the air is mixed with the beer. An on and off valve is used in a traditional keg. This types works by gravity and there is no need for air pressure. The traditional keg valve simply needs to be opened or closed to get your beer.
