Plastic Pluto Gun (On Disconnect)
These are a great option for if you want to use your keg while inside your fridge or out at a party. They are tough, impossible to accidentally bump on and you can use them with the keg lying down. The fittings it is supplied with are push fittings for easy dismantling to clean etc but keep the hose it is supplied with whole and for this use only.
- Nylon Pluto Gun
- Black Plastic Liquid Disconnect
- 2 x FFL Duo Tight Push Fittings
- 1.5m of 4mm internal Duotight Hose (do not cut! This is the correct length for slowing the beer down to prevent foaming)
There is also a couple of tricks to reduce foaming:
The first splash of beer coming out the tap will often be foamy and if this goes into the glass foam continues to build on it (notice when a bartender pours a beer they often turn the tap on and then put the glass under a second or two later)
Also ensure you pull the trigger all the way in, pulling it halfway will create turbulence and more foam.
Having a warm tap and hose will create foam till the cold beer flowing through cools it, best to keep in the fridge.
