  • Small bursts of air & beer

    After I tapped my keg. All I get is air and a small amount of beer then it stops and I hear gurgling inside the keg.

    Did you make sure your beer and gas lines didn't get installed backwards when you may have cleaned your coupler?
    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.

      Does it pour beer for a second, then stop and foam up, then pour then foam? if you leave the faucet open

      If so could be a torn seal on the keg, even the smallest tear/rip can cause beer to spurt out of the faucet, small thin washers placed over the small tear/rip and retapping can fill in the tear/rip to achieve foamless non spitting pours

      But could you be more specific as well? What kind/brand/keg of beer? what kind of coupler/tavern head are you using? etc etc

        Never heard gurgling inside the keg before. Please attach photo of the keg with coupler attached. My initial call is to agree with Psychodad.
