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. 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. 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. 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. With the use of a lever and with the actions of pulling and pressing it, the beer is released. You can get you beer when the pressure is released and it pushes the beer up to your glass. 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. When there is too much movement while transporting the keg, the foam builds up. 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. 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. The keg receives pressure in a single unit pump and tap combination and this 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.
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. 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.
