Bring Your Beer Right to you with a Beer Keg Tap
We can always find beer kegs during parties or picnics with our family and friends. Kegs are very ideal to those who drink a lot which is also cost effective and money saving. The device that allows you to release the beer into your drinking cup from the keg is a keg tap. 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.
In order to get beer from the keg, you need to control 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. Technically, a keg tap is a switch that you can turn of or off or you can switch to open or close.
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. 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. You need to play it safe.
With a portable keg system, you tap 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. To release the pressure in the ked, the pump is attached and the faucet is opened. Pumping gives air pressure into the keg, and a push on the lever, which is the tap handle that releases beer.
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. Traditional keg uses an on and off valve. 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.
