Maintaining a Commercial Beer Tap System
The beer tap system is one of the most important tools in a bar, nightclub, or restaurant, so it's important that you're properly maintaining your system. But, with multiple moving parts involved, understanding and maintaining your beer tap system can easily become overwhelming. Here, we’ll break down how to maintain and clean your beer tap system and show you the solutions to several common problems you may run into.

Here is everything you need to know to make sure that you can keep the delicious and cold beers coming. How to Clean Your Beer Taps One of the best options for cleaning your beer tap lines is to use a cleaning kit. A beer tap cleaning kit comes with all the equipment and chemicals you need to clean your system, and they come with easy-to-follow instructions. Instead of cleaning the taps themselves, many bar owners choose to use a cleaning service. Services are quick and convenient, and they ensure that your system is cleaned efficiently and regularly. How Often Should Beer Lines Be Cleaned? How regularly you should clean your beer tap system will depend on the volume of your business. High-volume nightclubs, sports bars, and banquet halls should clean their beer tap lines every week or two. Lower volume establishments only need to clean their draft lines every 2 or 3 weeks. How to Tap a Keg Tapping kegs is an essential skill for bartenders. Here is how you can tap a keg in three easy steps: Attach the coupler to your gas cylinder. Make sure that you have the correct coupler for the beer you're serving, as using the wrong coupler can affect the gas pressure and how your beer pours. Open the gas valve and adjust the gas pressure. Most light beers, ales, and lagers should be dispensed at 10 - 12 PSI. Darker beers like porters and stouts should be dispensed at higher pressure levels, closer to 25 - 30 PSI. Take the dust cover off your keg. Attach your beer tap to the keg, ensuring that it is securely locked in place. Common Problems and Solutions for Beer Tap Systems Is there an issue with your beer tap system? Most issues with beer tap systems are a result of improper temperature, improper pressure, or cleaning issues. So before you call a technician next time you have an issue with your beer lines, check out this list of common problems and solutions. Foamy Beer Beer that is too foamy is one of the most common problems bartenders and bar owners will encounter. The good news is that this is a very easily fixed problem. Here are some of the main causes of foamy beer and how to fix them: The draft cooler is too warm. The cooler should be kept between 36 - 38 degrees Fahrenheit. Your glasses are frozen. When beer comes into contact with a glass that is too cold, it can cause the beer to foam up. You should also never freeze your glasses because it can freeze water in the beer and numb customers' taste buds to the delightful flavors of your brews. Beer lines are too warm or too cold. Make sure that your beer line systems are refrigerated or insulated according to the type of beer you're offering. Lines should be kept at the proper serving temperature for each beer. The beer is being improperly dispensed. The correct way to pour a beer is to start by holding the glass at a 45 degree angle, quickly open the faucet, and slowly transition into a 90 degree hold on the glass, dispensing until you have about 1" of head at the top. Additionally, you should never let the faucet touch the beer. There is too much pressure in your system. Generally, U.S. ales and lagers are dispensed at 10 - 12 PSI, while stouts and other styles are dispensed at 25 - 30 PSI (adding 1 PSI for each 2000 ft. increment above sea level). The taps are dirty or malfunctioning. Foamy beer may be a result of dirty beer lines, so be sure to clean your beer tap system thoroughly. If cleaning doesn't resolve the situation, you may need to have your system serviced by a professional, or some parts may need to be replaced. Flat Beer Nothing is worse than getting a beer that is flat and tasteless. Ensure that you're serving your guests delicious and carbonated beverages with these simple fixes: Your beer is too cold. Barrels should be stored between 36 - 38 degrees Fahrenheit, while the lines should be refrigerated or insulated to properly maintain the serving temperature of the beer you're serving. Additionally, different types of beer are stored at different temperatures. The glasses haven't been properly cleaned. Glasses should be cleaned with specific bar glass chemicals, since standard detergents are more likely to leave a film behind. Grease deposits and lint from towels can cause your beer to lose its head and to have a flat appearance. So be sure to use the correct cleaner and let your glasses air dry. There is not enough pressure in your system. Make sure that your gas cylinder is set to the correct PSI and ensure that the coupler is securely attached. You're using an air compressor for pressure. Some establishments will try to use air compressors to dispense their beer to cut costs. Air will not carbonate your beer, resulting in a flat product. When dispensing beer, you must use either carbon dioxide or a mixture of carbon dioxide and nitrogen. Cloudy Beer The ideal beer for most styles has a 1 inch head, is nicely carbonated, and is perfectly clear. But if your beer comes out cloudy, here are some ways you can fix it. It's important to note, though, that some beers, like wheat beers, are supposed to be cloudy. The beer is over-chilled in the keg or beer lines. If the beer is too cold, ice can start forming, which causes the beer to become cloudy. Make sure that your beer is stored at the correct temperature. Beer lines or taps have not been adequately cleaned. Over time, yeast and sediment can build up in your draft lines or taps. This sediment can get into your beer and cause it to turn cloudy. You can prevent this by cleaning your beer tap system regularly and thoroughly. Your pressure source is contaminated. Carbon dioxide cylinders should be regularly inspected and maintained if they're being refilled instead of replaced. Otherwise, rust and other contaminants may build up inside and get into your beer. Some cylinders can be fitted with in-line purifiers that use carbon beads to remove contaminants. Unusual Taste Being served a beer that tastes "off" is one of the worst things that can happen at a bar. Here's how to prevent it from happening at yours: Beer lines or taps are dirty. Build-up in the beer lines or tap can affect the taste of your beer, so you should clean them regularly. Your gas cylinders are contaminated. Check your gas tank for rust or contamination. You may need to swap it out for a different tank and have the contaminated tank cleaned. Beer glasses haven't been cleaned properly. If you use the wrong chemicals to clean your beer glasses, they can leave a small film that can cause your beer to taste off. Make sure that you're using specifically beer glass chemicals and sanitizer. You're serving old beer. Many breweries print a freshness date on kegs to help prevent you from holding onto a product for too long. As a general rule of thumb, a keg of non-pasteurized beer being dispensed with carbon dioxide will stay fresh for approximately 45-60 days, while pasteurized beer will hold for between 90-120 days. Beer Isn't Flowing Beer not flowing is a huge problem for bars. Here are some easy troubleshooting tips to ensure you get your beer flowing again quickly: Your keg is empty. Replace the empty one with a fresh keg. You can also use a keg check to see the current levels in your keg. Your gas cylinder is empty. Replace or refill your tank. A double gauge regulator can be a handy investment for your tank because it has a regulated pressure gauge and it also shows how much is left in your tank. The gas is turned off. Your CO2 should be left on, unless there are leaks or you need to change out the cylinder. Your keg is tapped incorrectly. Make sure your keg has been tapped correctly. The beer lines are frozen. Thaw out the frozen lines. Make sure that the beer is being stored at an appropriate temperature--generally between 36 - 38 degrees Fahrenheit--to avoid freezing, which can cause ice to backup into your beer line. If ambient temperature is the problem, consider insulating the beer lines. The beer tap system is one of the most important pieces of equipment in a bar, so it’s important that you know how to clean, maintain, and troubleshoot your system. And with this information you’ll be able to handle any problem that might come your way.
