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. If you do not know how to use a keg tap, then you can waste a lot of beer, and this is why you need to be careful is using it since it is actually easy to use. Foam can be released from the keg tap if not done properly, and it can go all over your face or your body. You would see people doing this but it is not as easy as it looks.
The keg tap regulates the release of beer. With the use of a lever and with the actions of pulling and pressing it, the beer is released. When pressure is released, it pushes the beer up and into the glass. 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. 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. You should remove the cap or seal since it is 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. You need to 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. IN this type, the keg and the beer keg tap are separated. You need to attach the pump, and the faucet must be opened to release the pressure in the keg. 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. 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.
