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. 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.
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.
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. Foam build up is the result of too much movement when the keg is being transported. 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. Pros don’t remove the cap or seal because they know how not to put the beer at risk. If you will do it, you need to play it safe.
A portable keg system can be tapped with CO2. Pressure is received by the keg in a single unit pump and tap combination, which is called party pump. The beer keg tap is separated from the keg. 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.
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. An on and off valve is used in a traditional keg. This types works by gravity and there is no need for air pressure. When the valve is used, you simply turn to open or close the keg to get some beer.
