Welcome to our range of 5 Litre Mini Keg. These portable kegs are easily carried with their built in carry handle and ensure great pour with the built in venting cap on the top. They are great for parties, social gatherings and are great to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. Offering brewery fresh pints on tap whenever and wherever you would like them. These kegs should be chilled in the fridge for around 12 hours or until they are at fridge temperature (4°C) to prevent excessive foaming. The beer can then be dispensed perfectly and the beers are best consumed within 72 hours to ensure correct carbonation and freshness.
Operational tips: Ensure the tap handle is fully pulled out so the the internal seal can energise against the keg body or you may find excessive leaking from the keg body. The first initial pour may be slightly foamy due to the built up carbonation but this is to be expected and will settle quite quickly after that, the pour may also slow on the first pint as the vacuum is created while dispensing the beer. Once the pour becomes quite slow, release the top vent cap and when dispensing the beer leave the top cap open then close it once the pint has been poured, this ensures a nice steady speed of pour without an excessive head. Continue this process until the keg is empty and enjoy each quality pint of beer with a perfect pour.
Warning: Do not open the vent cap until the pour has slowed down or the beer may evacuate the keg through the top cap with potential beer wastage and mess.
