Bring Your Beer Right to you with a Beer Keg Tap
We usually see beer kegs in parties or picnic especially 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. 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. Foam can be released from the keg tap if not done properly, and it can go all over your face or your body. 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. With the use of a lever and with the actions of 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. Foam build up is the result of too much movement when the keg is being transported. 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. Since we are not pros we should play it safe.
Tapping with CO2 is done with portable keg systems. Pressure is received by the keg in a single unit pump and tap combination, which is called party pump. IN this type, the keg and the beer keg 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.
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. In a traditional keg and on and off valve is used. 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.
