A Simple Plan: Taps

Bring Your Beer Right to you with a Beer Keg Tap

We can always find beer kegs during parties or picnics 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. 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 release of the beer is regulated by 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. The foam builds up when the keg is transported especially when there is too much movement. 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. However, the pros do not remove the cap or seal because they will not put the beer at risk like you will. If you will do it, you need to 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. You can release beer by applying air pressure to the keg by pumping and pushing the lever or the tap handle.

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. 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.
