Kegging and Beer Taps A keg used to be made of a wooden barrel to contain beer, but, nowadays, it is now constructed of either aluminum or stainless steel to store and serve beer under a pressurized condition. Beer is stored in what is termed as the kegging system, which is equipped with the following parts: the aluminum or stainless steel keg, a carbon dioxide gas tank, pressure regulator and two hoses, one hose feeds carbon dioxide gas into the keg inlet and the other hose brings the beer from the keg to the beer tap. Once you have cleaned your keg, pressurize the keg with gas once and check for leaks by applying a small amount of soapy water around the hose fittings and valves, afterwards, sterilize the keg with a safe agent, such as iodophor, before filling the keg. When the keg is prepared for filling in, siphon the beer from the homebrew fermenter into the keg, being careful not to aerate or splash the beer. As soon as the keg is full of the beer, pressure it using the carbon dioxide tank and purge any remaining air in the keg by displacing it with carbon dioxide, then release the air using the release valve at the top of the keg, repeating this 4-6 times to ensure that all of the air is out and replaced by carbon dioxide. When the keg has been clear of air and fully pressurized with carbon dioxide, the beer in the keg can be stored for several months, for as long as the keg has no leaks. As soon as the keg is filled up and pressurized with carbon dioxide, the next step is carbonation of the stored beer under maintaining conditions, such as meeting the desired carbon dioxide volume of 2.4 and constant temperature inside the refrigerator, where the pressurized keg is stored, and by using a carbonation calculator you can calculate the carbon dioxide pressure necessary for carbonation to take place, so use the data entries of the following: temperature inside the refrigerator, volume of carbon dioxide at 2.4, and the volume of the beer. As soon as the carbon dioxide pressure is determined, adjust the carbon dioxide gas tank to the computed pressure, and allow the keg to carbonate until it reaches full carbonation within a week. Using the right type of beer tap can help ensure a well-sealed faucet and flow of beer is also well-controlled. There are basically two types of beer taps, which are commonly available in the market today, and they are: the pressure dispense bar taps, which is the most popularly used in homes and bars, and the portable picnic taps, which is a small, inexpensive plastic taps used with a hand pump.What Almost No One Knows About Taps
