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. IF you have a keg tap, this device will allow 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. Improper use of the keg tap can let foam go all over your face or all over you. Getting beer from a keg tap looks easy but it is not as easy as it looks.
In order to get beer from the keg, you need to control the keg tap. This uses a lever and through 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.
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. 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. You should remove the cap or seal since it is harder to tap with it. Since pros know how not to put the beer at risk they don’t remove the cap or seal. Since we are not pros we should play it safe.
With a portable keg system, you tap with CO2. 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. You attach the pump, and the faucet must be opened so that the pressure in the keg is released. 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. This traditional keg does not need air pressure since it works using gravity. When the valve is used, you simply turn to open or close the keg to get some beer.
