Guide to Beer Keg Taps
We can always find beer kegs during parties or picnics with our family and friends. Thirsty people need to drink a lot so the keg is really cost effective and could save money. IF you have a keg tap, this device will allow you to release the beer into your drinking cup from the keg. If you do not know how to use a keg tap, then you can waste a lot of beer, and this is why you need to be careful is using it since it is actually easy to use. You can splash foam all over you or all over your face. It is not as easy as you see people doing it.
The keg tap regulates the release of beer. 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. Technically, a keg tap is a switch that you can turn of or off or you can switch to open or close.
You can minimize the foam created when pouring by placing the beer keg in a steady position for a short while. Foam build up is the result of too much movement when the keg is being transported. Let it stay for a while and place the keg where you plan to serve the beer to minimize the foam. You should remove the cap or seal since it is harder to tap with it. Pros don’t remove the cap or seal because they know how not to put the beer at risk. If you will do it, you need to play it safe.
A portable keg system can be tapped with CO2. The keg receives pressure in a single unit pump and tap combination and this is called party pump. The beer keg tap is separated from the keg. To release the pressure in the ked, the pump is attached and the faucet is opened. Air pressure is applied to the keg by pumping and when the lever is pushed, which is the tap handle, beer is released.
A portable beer keg or a pony keg should be finished in a single because after that the beer loses its flavor when it is mixed with air. In a traditional keg and on and off valve is used. By using this, you are serving by gravity, and there is no air pressure needed. When the valve is used, you simply turn to open or close the keg to get some beer.
