  • College student with college questions. Keg Freshness

    so im a college student on a college budget, we occasionally scrape together enough money for a keg or two for a weekend or party. there is also the fact that we dont have enough money for a kegerator. my question is, 'how long will the keg last in a room temp room after tapping?". generally we get 312, or goose island kegs because we have a friend that gets us a discount, i dont know if that plays into the equation at all.

    thanks for any and all help/suggestion/info.

    Be concerned with how you tap it as well as the temperature. If you are using a party pump, the oxygen you are introducing and the above 38 degree temperatures is going to ruin the beer rather quickly.

    In my younger days, we generally tried to kill the keg the next day in the event we didn't kill it that night. I realize scarping the money together to buy the kegs is tough enough maybe. But look at the kegerator as an investment.
    Malt is the soul of beer... and yeast gives it life..
    but the kiss of the hop is the vitality of that life!

    My three favorite beers: The one I just had, the one I'm drinking now and the next one I'll have.

      Or at least a co2 tank, coupler and picnic faucet. This would preserve the beer a lot better then the air. You would still need to keep it cold or on ice to prevent deterioration but it would be cheaper than a kegerator. The couplers are easy to come by, the picnic faucet and line is cheap and the regulator and tank would be the only real cost there.

          Hi everyone!
          Tomorrow I will receive an archive with data analysis tasks. Time to complete tasks from 10:00 to 14:00.
          I have the tasks of last year, although last year students recommended Access or SQL Server software.
          Now recommend Excel, Python. Guys, is it possible to order python homework help? Where should I ask for help? Thank you all for your advice.

            I understand a college student on a college budget, I remember when I was a student, it was very difficult to scrape money for something. Much difficult for me were all those unnecessary writing assignments, which I had also to pay for. You can read the EssayBox review, the service, that helped me with my college papers, they have reasonable prices, affordable for all students.
