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. 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. 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. It is not as easy as you see people doing it.
The keg tap regulates the release of beer. This uses a lever and through pulling and pressing it, the beer is released. When pressure is released, it pushes the beer up and into the glass. The keg tap is technically a switch and may be an on-off or a close-open switch.
You can minimize the foam created when pouring by placing the beer keg in a steady position for a short while. When there is too much movement while transporting the keg, the foam builds up. When you have placed the keg where you plan to serve beer, let it stay for a while, because this will help to minimize the foam. Remove the cap or seal since it will be harder to tap with 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. Party pump is when pressure is receive by the keg in a single unit pump and tap combination. Here, the keg and the tap are separated. To release the pressure in the ked, the pump is attached and the faucet is opened. You can release beer by applying air pressure to the keg by pumping and pushing the lever or the tap handle.
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. Traditional keg uses an on and off valve. This traditional keg does not need air pressure since it works using gravity. In this type, you can get your beer by sampling opening or closing the keg when the valve is used.
