First time tapping a keg - advice needed

Postby Gedge » Mon Sep 28, 2015 9:51 am

I bought a 1/6 BBL keg at Southern Tier for a party this weekend. Can I tap this keg with one of the taps/pumps from the Beer Store?

Should be a standard Sanikey "D" connection. Get the keg nice and cold then tap it. Warm kegs foam badly and banging it around setting up the tap will make it worse. Beer store should be able to confirm connection as they are selling you the keg!
Enjoy!!

Southern Tier kegs do not come from the Beer Store.

No worries! Still north American so 99% chance it's a D

Definitely will work with TBS keg pump. International (European) kegs use a different coupler.
FYI, the only beer store location in the city that rents the pumps is Dupont and Bathurst.
