Party Pumps - know them !!
Party pumps are perfect for single keg special event environments like picnics, backyard BBQ's, beach parties and more. The manual hand pump builds pressure to forces the beer out of the keg. A classic mistake when operating a party pump is that the user will pump first and then open the faucet, this generally Results in a faster (foamy) pour.
Proper way of Dispensing/Pumping
1. Tap the keg.
2. Open faucet until all pressure is relieved.
3. Open faucet and begin pumping until desired
flow is reached.
4. Stop pumping, only pump with faucet open.
5. Repeat step #3 until keg is emptied.
More tips to Keeping it Fresh !!!
After purchasing the keg, it is recommended to cover the keg with a blanket or keg jacket. This will insulate the keg and keep it cool during transit. Transport the keg directly to the location in which it will be dispensed and put keg in a barrel of ice. Keep pump and keg out of direct sunlight. When not in use, submerse faucet and beer line in ice on top of keg.
