CO can be dangerous! CO cylinders contain high-pressured gas, which can be
hazardous if handled improperly. They must be handled with care.
Tapping the Beer Keg – Installing Keg Tap (Single-Valve Type Barrel)
Follow these steps below to tap the beer keg.
Make sure the black pull handle of the tap is in the closed (up) position before
installing it on the keg (Fig. 1 below). Insert the keg coupler into the locking
neck of the beer keg and turn clockwise ¼ to lock it into position (Fig. 2 below).
This means that it is secured to the keg.
When connecting the beer line, it is very important that the black rubber washer
be installed inside the wing nut before connecting the beer line to the tap (see
Illustration A below). Remove the black rubber protective cap located on top of
tap and screw the wing nut with the rubber washer. Tighten it firmly by hand.
Attach the CO line end of the tube to the hose connection on the tap. Next,
secure the tube by using the remaining self-locking plastic snap-on clamp to
ensure that there are no leaks. Secure the clamp tightly with pliers (Fig. 3
Make sure the beer tower faucet is in the closed (handle pointing straight back)
position before connecting the tap to the keg. To secure the tank connection, pull
the tapping handle out and push down until it locks into position. Listen for the
"click" of the pull handle when it shifts into the final downward position (Fig. 4-
below).This will open the beer and CO gas valves. The keg is now tapped.
Carefully tilt the keg and
bottom of the interior cabinet. Slide the beer keg slowly, ensuring that it is
properly located (Fig. 5 below) and carefully close the door.
Your kegerator comes with a 2.5 lb. CO bottle, which should be able to
dispense four 15 gallon kegs of beer.
