How Does a Beer Keg Tap Work?
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. IF you have a keg tap, this device will allow 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. You can splash foam all over you or all over your face. You would see people doing this but it is not as easy as it looks.
The release of the beer is regulated by the keg tap. This uses a lever and through 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. 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.
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. 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.
A portable beer keg or a pony keg should be finished in a single because after that the beer loses its flavor when it is mixed with air. An on and off valve is used in a traditional keg. 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.
