PerfectDraft Kegs

PerfectDraft Keg Installation

PerfectDraft is a fantastic way to enjoy your favourite beers in the comfort of your own home. The PerfectDraft keg is a 6-litre keg designed specifically for use with the PerfectDraft machine. If you are new to using PerfectDraft, you may be wondering how to properly insert a PerfectDraft keg into your machine. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you get started.

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Prepare the PerfectDraft Machine:

    • Before inserting the keg, make sure that your PerfectDraft machine is plugged in and turned on. It is recommended to let the machine cool for at least 3 hours before use. This will ensure that the beer is served at the correct temperature.
  2. Remove the Drip Tray:

    • The drip tray is the plastic tray that sits at the base of the machine. To remove it, simply lift it up and pull it towards you. This will allow you to access the keg cabinet.
  3. Remove the Protective Cap:

    • The PerfectDraft keg comes with a protective cap on the top. This cap needs to be removed before inserting the keg. Simply lift the cap off and set it aside.
  4. Insert the Keg:

    • With the protective cap removed, you can now insert the keg into the machine. First, insert the plastic tube from the top of the keg into the tap unit. Then, take the tap unit and push it down on top of the keg until it clicks into place. You should hear two clicks when the keg is securely in place.
  5. Reattach the Drip Tray:

    • Once the keg is in place, you can reattach the drip tray. Simply slide the tray back into place in front of the machine.
  6. Let the Keg Chill:

    • After inserting the keg, it is important to let it chill for at least 10 hours before use. This will allow the beer to reach the correct temperature and ensure it is served at its best.
  7. Enjoy Your Beer:

    • Once the keg has chilled, you can start enjoying your beer. Simply pull the tap handle forward and wait for the beer to start flowing. Make sure to pour the beer into a clean, cold glass for the best taste.
