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. Kegs are very ideal to those who drink a lot which is also cost effective and money saving. The device that allows you to release the beer into your drinking cup from the keg is a keg tap. 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. You can splash foam all over you or all over your face. It is not as easy as you see people doing it.
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. Keg taps work like switches which you can put on or off or it can also be an open-close switch.
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. You should remove the cap or seal since it is harder to tap with it. Pros don’t remove the cap or seal because they know how not to put the beer at risk. You need to play it safe.
A portable keg system can be tapped with CO2. The keg receives pressure in a single unit pump and tap combination and this is called party pump. 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.
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. 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.
