Tapping a Keg

  1. After transportation, let the keg itself settle for a bit. A good rule to follow is 30-45 minutes.

  2. Remove and discard the plastic cover from the opening.

  3. Carefully insert the tap in and twist with the lever facing up. Facing up!

  4. Push the lever down. You don't have to pump at first because there is already pressure. You usually have to fill 1-2 "courtesy cups" that will be entirely foam.
