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. Thirsty people need to drink a lot so the keg is really cost effective and could save 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. You can splash foam all over you or all over your face. It is not as easy as you see people doing it.
The release of the beer is regulated by the keg tap. 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.
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. Remove the cap or seal since it will be 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. The keg receives pressure in a single unit pump and tap combination and this 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. Air pressure is applied to the keg by pumping and when the lever is pushed, which is the tap handle, beer is released.
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. In a traditional keg and on and off valve is used. This types works by gravity and there is no need for air pressure. The traditional keg valve simply needs to be opened or closed to get your beer.
