Do I need to keep my keg cold?

YES! Draft beer is not pasteurized and needs to be kept between 34° and 40° F.


How do I reduce the amount of foam?

  • Don’t worry if your first pint is all foam. Set it aside and continue to pour.
  • Always let your keg settle after transportation. We recommend at least an hour.
  • Icing your tap for about 1 hour can also help reduce foam. (The change in temperature when cold beer hits warm tubing = excess foam)

How often should I pump my keg?

  • When you tap your keg, do no pump for the first few pints! There is plenty of pressure in the keg to get you started.
  • There is no set rule about how much to pump your keg. Judge the flow of beer and pump when necessary. If the keg has been over-pumped, there is sometimes a pressure release valve with a metal ring that you can pull to release some of the pressure.

How long will my keg last?

If you have a kegerator, your beer should remain fresh for around 30-40 days. If you are using a party tap, you’ll need to finish the keg in 24-36 hours. After that the beer will have an oxidized flavor similar to wet paper or cardboard.
