Getting Down To Basics with Taps

Guide to Beer Keg Taps

We usually see beer kegs in parties or picnic especially with our family and friends. 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. A keg tap is a device that allows you to release the beer into your drinking cup from the keg. Keg taps are really easy to use but care must be given in handling it so that you don’t waste the beer, which can happen if you do not know how to use it correctly. You can splash foam all over you or all over your face. You would see people doing this but it is not as easy as it looks.

In order to get beer from the keg, you need to control the keg tap. You can release beer from the keg tap with the use of a lever and through pulling and pressing it. When pressure is released, it pushes the beer up and into the glass. Technically, a keg tap is a switch that you can turn of or off or you can switch to open or close.

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. In order to minimize the foal, place the keg where you plan to serve the beer and let it stay for a while. 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. 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. Here, the keg and the tap are separated. To release the pressure in the ked, the pump is attached and the faucet is opened. Pumping gives air pressure into the keg, and a push on the lever, which is the tap handle that releases beer.

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. An on and off valve is used in a traditional keg. 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.
