Figuring Out Taps

How Does a Beer Keg Tap Work?

We can always find beer kegs during parties or picnics with our family and friends. Kegs are very ideal to those who drink a lot which is also cost effective and money saving. A keg tap is a device that allows 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. Foam can be released from the keg tap if not done properly, and it can go all over your face or your body. 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. 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. 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. Foam build up is the result of too much movement when the keg is being transported. In order to minimize the foal, place the keg where you plan to serve the beer and let it stay for a while. 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. You need to play it safe.

A portable keg system can be tapped with CO2. Party pump is when pressure is receive by the keg in a single unit pump and tap combination. IN this type, the keg and the beer keg 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.

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. By using this, you are serving by gravity, and there is no air pressure needed. The traditional keg valve simply needs to be opened or closed to get your beer.
