Step 1: Make sure regulator knob is turned all the way off (Counter-clockwise)
Step 2: Insert a full QuikTap 12 oz. Co2 cylinder into the bottom of the regulator and screw all the way in.
Step 3: With coupler lever disengaged (up position) turn regulator knob clockwise until pressure gauge reads between 5-8 psi.
Step 4: Make sure faucet is closed with the tap handle in the back position.
Step 5: Insert the bottom of the QuikTap coupler into the neck of the keg and twist clockwise. (Do not over tighten, it only needs to be securely attached.)
Step 6: To tap into the keg, pull the coupler lever out, push down, then release. Make sure the coupler lever stays locked down.
Step 7: Double check to make sure the pressure gauge remains between 5-8 psi. Now the keg is tapped and beer will dispense by pulling the tap handle.
Note: If the keg was warmed or shaken, it may contain excessive pressure which must be relieved before serving. Pull the ring for the pressure relief
valve on the side of the coupler to purge the excessive pressure. Observe the regulator gauge to monitor the change in pressure.
