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. IF you have a keg tap, this device will allow 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. You can splash foam all over you or all over your face. Getting beer from a keg tap looks easy but it is not as easy as it looks.
The keg tap regulates the release of beer. With the use of a lever and with the actions of pulling and pressing it, the beer is released. It works by releasing the pressure, which in turn pushes the beer up and into a glass or a container. 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. 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. Since we are not pros we should 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 need to attach the pump, and the faucet must be opened to release the pressure in the keg. Air pressure is applied to the keg by pumping and when the lever is pushed, which is the tap handle, beer is released.
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. In this type, you can get your beer by sampling opening or closing the keg when the valve is used.
