Q: I have a fass frisch co2 tap system, but misplaced the tube that screws on the bottom of the tap (through which beer is drawn from the bottom of the keg). Is it possible to get just the tube?
A: the pick up tube is unfortunately not available to us as a separate or spare part at this time
Q: Can I use one tap with 2 mini kegs, such that I can have one beer conditioning while the other is being used for dispensing?
A: 1 tap can be used on multiple kegs. It cannot be used to dispense from two kegs at once but can tap one keg while the other is conditioning
Q: I'm carbonating my beer in the mini kegs, with the 2 piece bung in the top of each keg. When using the party star tap for the first time: Should I use the tap on the first pour to release some pressure? Or do I go ahead and assemble the tap, and install it onto the keg? Then install the co2 cartridge?
A: The tap system can be used right out of the gate and will eventually balance out the pressure to what is provided by the co2 cartridge used for dispensing
Q: I'm researching kegging my home brew. I always brew 5 gallon batches. Can I buy 5 mini kegs, and store my beer in them? And, just swap the tap, as I empty a keg? Also, do I still add priming sugar to my 5 gallon batch? Or, will the co2 cartridges do all the carbonating?
A: the batch can be split into 5 mini kegs and carbonated using sugar. The co2 cartridges can potentially be used but would need to go through quite a few to get enough carbonation, and are best reserved just for serving from the tap system
Q: Do you just sell the threaded co2 cover?
A: the cover itself is not provided as a spare part by the vendor at this time
Q: Can you fill these with beer carbonated in regular kegs?
A: so long as the smaller kegs are filled at a low PSI to not disturb the dissolved co2 or carbonation, these could potentially be used to dispense carbed beer as well
Q: I have been using about a year and have problems with the CO2 cartridges slowly leaking out after installing. I’ve tried different mfg and both non-threaded and threaded. What’s the trick to getting these to work?
A: Making sure the cartridge length mates with the base of the cartdige holder used with the untreaded charges would be best. If the size is not 3.75" in length and 7/8" in width it is possible the seat with the tap can allow slow leaks
Q: What is the height from mini keg base to top of tap when assembled?
A: The height of the tap itself is 4" and the keg is 10. Allowing for 15" of clearance would be best
Q: Is there a way to attach a floating dip tube so beer is always served from the top rather than the bottom where the yeast is?
A: This is not something currently offered as most dip tubes by design will be collecting from the bottom to get as much fluid as possible.
Q: Can you hook up a hose from a regulator and CO2 tank to it?
A: This product does not have a connection that would allow it to be adapted to a co2 tank, and will only run off of smaller co2 cartridges
Q: does the co2 cartridge need to be changed at each keg change?
A: No, they should last you a bit longer than one keg.
Q: Is there a parts diagram for reassembly after thorough cleaning?
A: there is not a detailed parts diagram but there are only a couple of parts that will need to be disassembled for cleaning that make contact with the beer.
Q: When using this tap should priming sugar be used to pre carbonate the beer? If priming sugar is needed what is the approximate amount needed per 5 gallon batch?
A: You can't use this tap to force carbonate a beer in the 5l party kegs.
Your beer will need to be naturally carbonated, or pre-carbonated.
A 5 gallon batch of beer will generally use 3oz of corn sugar for carbonating in a keg.
To carbonate a 5l keg, you'll want about 1.1oz of corn sugar.
Q: would this carbonate a 2.5 gallon keg by chance?
A: No, you will need a ball lock kegging set up, including regulator and co2 tank in order to carbonate a 2.5 gal keg.
Q: Is this new or used? Does it come in original box?
A: This is new and comes in the original box.
Q: Can this tap be set to automatically hold a preset pressure?
A: Yes, there is an adjustment dial that acts as a regulator.
