How many kegs can I pour with my QuikBOX® using a 5# CO2 cylinder?2022-08-04T13:48:10-04:00

There are variables at play here, such as serving pressure (PSI), full kegs or not, temperature of CO2 tank, etc. That being said, the conservative answer is that you should expect to be able to pour 12-18 full 5 gallon corny kegs.

Will using the QuikBOX® carbonate my cocktails?2022-08-04T13:40:21-04:00

Using CO2 to dispense cocktails with not carbonate your cocktails. If your cocktails already have carbonation, using CO2 will help preserve the carbonation while serving. The nature of using the QuikBOX® is for events/parties/functions that will serve many cocktails over the time of said function, meaning that use of CO2 gas to dispense is fine. Force carbonation of cocktails is a different subject matter altogether, which we can help with as well! If you are wanting to dispense with Nitrogen with your QuikBOX®, simple switch out the CO2 regulator that comes with the QuikBOX® Kit with a Nitrogen primary regulator.

What makes the QuikBOX® different than a jockey box for beer?2022-08-04T13:25:49-04:00

The QuikBOX® is very similar to a Jockey Box that beer folks use. However, the QuikBOX® Kit has all 304 stainless steel components, is set up specifically for use with Cornelius style kegs, and includes everything you need to serve cold, refreshing cocktails to large crowds. We thought of everything in this kit, down to our custom coolers for the kegs, to make sure that you don’t have to “build your own” solution and can focus on your business, not dispense. We also offer customization of the QuikBOX® to highlight your brand or company in the best light at all events!

What is the difference between the single use gas cylinders and bulk gas?2022-08-05T13:10:25-04:00

The single use gas cylinders (74gr CO2 and 18gr Nitrogen) offer the most portability with the QuikTap Tabletop Dispenser. Our bulk gas option offers a less expensive gas dispense cost and is ideal for long term placement on the bar or for larger pouring events where space is not limited. The best part is our QuikTap lineup of dispensers are modular and can be adapted for both single use gas cylinders and bulk gas.

The capacity of the QuikTap® Tabletop Dispenser is 2.5 gallons, however, it is recommended and best practice to formulate your cocktails to no more than 288 ounces.

Example: 288 liquid ounces will make 48/6oz cocktails. Six ounces of liquid will fill a 14oz glass filled with ice.

Why Batch Mix Cocktails?2022-08-10T07:40:57-04:00

How often do I need to clean and sanitize my QuikBOX®?2022-08-04T13:17:32-04:00

It is of paramount importance to keep your equipment clean and sanitized, not only for health reasons but for the longevity of your QuikBOX®.  Immediately after each use, attach your cleaning keg of PBW (and after, Star San sanitizer) liberally through the entire unit. Let the PBW sit in all lines for 20 minutes.  Flush with Star San sanitizer.   Disassemble the QuikBOX® in reverse of assembly.  Hang up your Liquid beverage lines to dry.  Remove the ice and water from the cooler.  Store the QuikBOX® with the top slightly ajar to allow sufficient airflow to dry. 

How do I setup my QuikBOX®?2022-08-04T12:36:44-04:00

The QuikBOX® made by QuikTap® is the best way to pour high volumes of your beverage cold while not diluting it with ice. In this video you will learn how to unpack, connect the self closing faucets, liquid lines and gas lines and get pouring portably in no time. This setup is built specifically for 5 gallon Cornelius style kegs.

My regulator or faucet disconnects are hard to put on the keg, what should I do?2022-08-05T13:10:56-04:00

There are a couple of reasons that this can happen and there is a simple solution!

  1. Check to make sure you are putting the the disconnects on the proper “posts” on the keg. The post marked “in” is for the regulator assembly (grey=gas) and the post marked “out” is for the faucet assembly (black=booze and booze comes out)
  2. Make sure you are pulling up on the collar of the disconnect when attaching to the keg!
  3. There is a black o-ring on both of the keg posts. Sometimes these will dry out over time and need some lubrication. Simply apply a small amount of food safe lubricant with your finger around the o-ring and this should solve your problem.
  4. Make sure the post o-ring isn’t damaged. If it is, simply replace it.
What’s the difference between the QuikTap® Cocktail Dispenser for Golf and the QuikTap® Tabletop Dispenser?2022-08-10T07:41:15-04:00

The QuikTap® Cocktail On Tap Golf Kit utilizes an internal check valve on the regulator assembly.  This is utilized to help avoid backflow into the regulator if the keg is mounted on a beverage golf cart.  The golf kit also comes standard with a stainless steel self closing faucet to prevent any accidental or unwanted pouring.

How many gallons or ounces do I batch the cocktail in the 2.5 gallon keg?2022-08-05T13:11:21-04:00

We recommend batching at (2) gallons or as close to 256 ounces as possible. Over filling of the keg will result in the beverage back-flowing into the regulator causing the dispenser not to work. If this happens, turn the regulator to the off positions, release all pressure in the keg by pulling up the pressure relief valve on the lid, removing the lid, and emptying out enough liquid so the gas dip tube is no longer submersed.

How do I know which keg post to put the regulator assembly on and the faucet assembly on?2022-08-05T13:11:31-04:00

On the keg you’ll see an IN post (male fitting) and OUT post (male fitting).  Black = booze.  Booze goes OUT.  Gray = gas.  Gas goes in.  Be sure to pull up on the collar on the disconnects (female fitting) and push down until you hear the distinct CLICK of the poppet and disconnect engaging properly. Make sure to keep the o-rings on the keg posts lubricated with food-grade lubricant!

At what pressure (PSI) should I pour my cocktails?2022-08-05T13:12:56-04:00

On average, 4-6 PSI is normal for non-carbonated beverages.  The CO2 is simply used to push out the beverage.  If you’re pouring a carbonated beverage such as a Moscow mule, you’ll want to keep the PSI higher (15-20 PSI) and take advantage of the Perlick Flow control faucet to reduce pouring speed.

How do I keep the cocktails in the dispenser cold?2022-08-04T16:15:23-04:00

There are a few different options for this.  Many will pre-batch the cocktails and put them in the refrigerator or cooler.  In the very warm environments, we’ve seen users use a tub with ice and place the dispenser in them.  Best practice is to serve the cocktails over ice.

How many 2.5 gallon kegs will the 74g single use CO2 cylinder dispense?2022-08-04T16:14:09-04:00

The 74g CO2 cylinder is used to push the cocktail out from the keg.  Depending on many variables including ambient temperature, pouring PSI, or head space in the keg to name a few, each 74g cylinder on average will dispense qty 2, 2.25 gallon batches. The CO2 also acts as a natural preservative as well as, helping shelf life of natural ingredients.

Can the QuikTap® SS be used for other carbonated beverages besides beer?2022-08-04T16:20:29-04:00

You can dispense any beverage that comes in a keg, just make sure you have the right coupler. You can choose the coupler that will come on your QuikTap® to match the kegs that you commonly use. You can easily change the coupler to most other types. If you are serving highly carbonated beverages such as sodas the flow-control faucet will allow you to serve at high pressures without creating too much foam.

What size CO2 tank does the QuikTap® SS use?2022-08-04T14:42:12-04:00

The QuikTap® comes with a 12 oz, refillable CO2 tank. For serving multiple kegs, check out the bulk adapter. You can easily connect to any size CO2 cylinder for a nearly endless supply of serving pressure.

Is the CO2 from the tank safe for consumption?2022-08-04T16:31:47-04:00

Yes. All QuikTap® brand CO2 tanks are food-grade. They have been cleaned and are safe for consumption. This is why we do not recommend using other brands of CO2 tanks.

Are CO2 tanks shipped fully charged?2022-08-04T16:32:02-04:00

No. Refillable CO2 tanks are shipped empty to comply with shipping safety protocols.

Can I use other CO2 tanks?2022-08-04T16:33:44-04:00

We do not recommend using other brand CO2 tanks. Many similar tanks are NOT food-grade and have not been cleaned from the inside. Oils and other hazardous material may be left behind from the manufacturing process. All QuikTap® brand CO2 tanks have been cleaned from the inside and are food-grade.

What pressure range does the regulator on the QuikTap® SS provide?2022-08-04T14:51:55-04:00

The adjustable regulator is designed to go between zero and 30 psi. Zero psi designates the “off” position when the regulator is fully closed.

Can I untap the keg and tap it again later?2022-08-04T14:44:01-04:00

Yes! You can easily tap and untap your keg as you please. To maintain carbonation, make sure you return the pressure to the proper level before removing the tap (approximately 10 psi for most beers, and 20-25 psi for sodas)

How much longer will my keg last using the QuikTap® SS?2022-08-04T14:46:45-04:00

With a normal pump tap, your keg will only last 1-2 days before turning stale and flat. With a QuikTap® SS, under pressure, the beer will stay fresh and carbonated all the way out to the date codes set by the brewery. Keeping the keg cold will also help to extend the life of your beer.
