HOW TO CHANGE BEER KEGS.

This is something you will have to do a lot of (hopefully!)

NEVER POSITION YOUR HEAD DIRECTLY OVER THE COUPLER TO A KEG WHEN REMOVING IT, THE CONTENTS ARE PRESSURISED AND THE POTENTIAL DANGER IS VERY HIGH!

Changing a beer keg is done by following the these set of steps:

Step 1. Turn off the gas supply to the beer keg.

Step 2. Disconnect the coupler from the empty beer keg.

Step 3. Remove the plastic seal on the new beer keg, and connect the coupler to the join. There are a couple of different couplers, some you push down and turn, and others you have to push a handle and twist. Whichever one you are dealing with always ensure the coupler is tightly in place.

Step 4. Turn the gas back on.

Step 5. Inspect the pressure cylinder on you wall for the keg; youíll either have a push button or a lever, which releases the plastic ball to allow the flow of liquid. Make sure this is open and the draught product can flow into the line.

Step 6. If you need to draw the draught product into the cylinder until it is full, this ensures the flow of the product through the lines.

Step 7. Go to the bar and pull the draught product through. If everything is working and connected properly then it will be ready to serve.
