You will require a mallet, one of our taps, a spile and an area that can be easily cleaned. It can get quite messy.
With the firkin placed on its side, gently tap the wooden spile into the round coloured shive. This will release the pressurisation in the firkin.
Then place the pointy end of the tap in the middle of the circular plastic grey ‘key stone’ and strike firmly until it feels secure. Make sure the tap is at the bottom/front side, where it is most easily accessed for refilling your pint glass.
There is no need to worry about allowing any sediment to settle in the beer, as we have prepared the beer ‘bright’ resulting in no sediment and can be consumed immediately after tapping.
