Pro Tips

Tip 1: Make sure you strain out fruit pulp or seeds from your favorite concoction prior to putting it in the QuikTap Tabletop Dispenser, as they will clog the feed tube and impede/stop the performance of your dispenser!

Tip 2: The gas is used to fill the head space in the keg and push out the beverage.  Start lower at 2-3 PSI and adjust to a higher PSI as needed to get desired flow. If you start out at too high of a PSI (and the beverage is coming out too fast),  adjust the regulator down pull the pressure relief valve on the top of the keg to release gas pressure. If you dial back the regulator from higher pressure to lower pressure, you will hear a “hissing” sound coming from the back of the regulator. This is normal as the regulator is releasing pressure to achieve psi level on dial.

Tip 3: Clean thoroughly using mild detergent and sanitizer after every use. We recommend using Powdered Brewery Wash and Star Sanitizer, both by Fivestar Chemical.

Tip 4: Use a faucet brush to clean the faucet regularly.

Tip 5:  You can put the whole Tabletop Dispenser in the refrigerator overnight if you haven’t gone through all of your beverage. Turn the regulator knob to “off” and let the pressure out of the keg using the pressure relief valve on the lid of the keg. This will keep your beverage from carbonating, unless of course, this is your desired effect.

Tip 6:  You can download the TableTop QuikStart Guide here.

Tip 7:  DO NOT agitate (shake) the keg with the regulator assembly attached.  This will cause back flow into the regulator itself and cause serious damage.

Tip 8:  Batch cocktails recipes to 2.25 gallons to avoid overfilling of keg and causing undesired back flow that is detrimental to the regulator.

How To Install and Use QuikTap’s Single Use Gas Cylinders

QuikTap’s single use gases are extremely convenient and practical.  Watch this video and learn how to install, use and replace QuikTap’s 74g CO2 and 18g Nitrogen single use gas cylinders with ease. It also includes some do’s and don’ts throughout the process.

Setup

Step 1: Clean the keg with a mild detergent such as Powdered Beer Wash (PBW) by Fivestar Chemical.

Step 2: Sanitize your keg after washing with Star San by Fivestar Chemical.

Step 3: Attach your full gas source (12oz Refillable CO2 Tank or Single Use Gas Cylinder) to the Regulator Assembly by turning clockwise until firmly seated. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. Turn the regulator knob to make sure you have pressure. If using the Bulk Gas Assembly, attach the regulator to the bulk gas cylinder, attach gas ball lock disconnect to the “IN” post, and set your desired pressure on the regulator. Once you have pressure, turn the regulator knob to the “off” position and pull the pressure relief valve to release pressure.

Step 4: Make sure your faucet assembly is clean and moves freely (forward and backward).

Dispensing

Step 1: Fill the keg with your custom craft cocktail recipe ingredients, or desired beverage, not to exceed 2.25 gallons. Close & lock the lid.

Step 2: Attach the Regulator Assembly to the post marked “IN” on the keg. To attach the grey ball lock disconnect to the “IN” post on the keg, lift the sliding collar on the disconnect and push down on the “IN” post, release the collar, and continue pushing until you hear a “click”. Now you are connected. If knob on the regulator is turned on, you should hear CO2 filling into the keg. Set the pressure on the regulator to 3-5 psi to start. Adjust your pressure as you wish for desired low. If you over-pressurize the keg, simply pull up on the pressure relief valve on the keg to release.

Step 3: Attach the faucet assembly with black ball lock disconnect in the same manner as above on the “OUT” post of the keg, until you hear the “click”. Make sure the faucet knob is in the off position (pushed back) so you don’t waste your beverage. Trust us on this one!

Step 4: Pull the faucet forward with drinking vessel below. Adjust regulator pressure if necessary & let the fun begin!

Cleaning

Step 1:  Clean the keg with a mild detergent such as Powdered Beer Wash (PBW) by Fivestar Chemical. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation on amount of wash to water ratio to use. Fill your keg with wash and water; use a long brush to gently scrub inside of keg. Install the lid and lock it on keg, attach gas source and
faucet assembly to keg and dispense the solution through the keg. Use a faucet brush to clean inside the faucet spout.

Step 2:  Rinse the keg with fresh water following the same instructions to wash the keg and faucet.

Step 3: Sanitize your keg after washing with Star San by Fivestar Chemical. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation on amount of sanitizer to water ratio to use. Follow the same instructions for washing and rinsing.

Step 4: Store unit without the lid attached to allow excess water to drain out and air dry.

Maintenance

Step 1: Clean keg and faucet after every use. This is a must!

Step 2: Check o-rings on keg posts, both “IN” and “OUT”. There is a small black o-ring on each post and over time, they can wear out. If you hear gas leaking from the grey ball lock disconnect when installed on the keg, chances are the o-ring is worn and needs to be replaced. Same goes for the black faucet ball lock disconnect. If you see liquid leaking from the black ball lock disconnect when installed on the keg, replace the o-ring on the keg post.

Step 3: Inspect the large o-ring on the keg lid for cracks or wear. Over time, this o-ring can become worn and stretch out of shape. If you aren’t getting a good seal when you lock the lid on the keg, replace this o-ring.

Step 4: Inspect the red o-ring on the 12oz Refillable CO2 Tank for cracks or wear. Over time, this o-ring can become worn, get brittle, or kink. If you aren’t getting a good connection when screwed into Regulator Assembly or you hear gas leaking from Regulator Assembly, the o-ring is the likely issue. Replace o-ring as needed.
