king keg top tap barrel, is a top tap barrel which includes a float and comes with a 4 inch cap and Bulb Pin with holder valve and tap.
A top tap barrel offers greater flexibility in use than a conventional bottom tap barrel. It can be stored on the floor and the beer can still be drawn off! This is achieved by a tube plugged into the back of the tap, on the other end of which is a FLOAT. The pressure inside the barrel delivers the beer and the float ensures that the clearest beer, from near the surface, reaches the glass!
Please note this barrel uses the Co2 Bulbs, (Does not come with Bulbs, or the plastic holder for the bulbs)Click to buy a Spare Bulb Holder
king keg top tap, The tap on the king kegs about 3/4 the way up the barrel, this is so you store the presure barrel on the floor but still able to get a glass full of beer, as the barrel has a float system to allow this to happen hence, top tap king keg
king keg cap, has a pin vlave fitted to the barrel, this is so you can use the co2 bulbs on the barrel to get the beer out, as pressure is always needed in a barrel to get the beer out via the tap
You do need to add Vaseline to the lid and make sure its very tight, hand tight is not normally enough to seal the lid
a cap spanner does the tick a extra 1/4 turn does make a difference
We also find some times the lids have bumps ( due to the manufacturing process ) we find sometimes if you give the top of the barrel
a sanding with wet and dry on a board to keep it level also helps
As long as the float is in the tap in the barrel it does not matter too much if it sinks or floats, its task is to give the ability
to draw the beer off under tap level.
The tap in the picture has been replaced with a fermenter tap which is a better tap
king keg barrels, have a number of different setups with different, barrel caps, We have 2, bottom tap barrels 1 with a Pin valve and the other a S30 valve which use the large c02 bottle anvaible in shop only and 2, top tap barrels again with Pin valve and S30 Valves, these can be used with those that make all, grain beer
When using a barrel always check the barrel after 1 hour of putting the beer in, check for pressure by opening the tap if pressure great if no pressure then check the lid re-tighten, add Vaseline, please don't wait 3-4 weeks then test otherwise you may not have a brew left
