What About Flow Control Models?

First, why flow control?  What Does a Flow Control Faucet Do?

Flow Control variations of Intertap and NukaTap faucets were both available at some point in the past. It seems they are largely (maybe completely) unavailable now.

Closeout Deal

As of this posting William’s Brewing is closing out ball lock flow control assemblies. This gets you a flow control faucet – along with the stuff to hook it up to a ball lock keg for portable serving.

Note: You’ll get a Nukatap OR an Intertap Flow Control faucet at William’s Brewing’s discretion. If you get an Intertap Flow Control… In my opinion, you’ll be getting one of the last available new units. That’s a guess.

Intertap Stainless Ball Lock Keg Faucet Assembly – on sale for $39.99 at William’s Brewing

Intertap Stainless Keg Faucet

Intertap Stainless Keg Faucet

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The Intertap faucet is made of stainless steel, and features a shuttle seal design, which means the body of the faucet remains full of beer at all times. Because the faucet stays full of beer at all times, it does not get sticky as the mechanism never has a chance to dry out and/or get contaminated. It is mounted on a stainless steel beer ball lock fitting to attach to any ball lock keg, making this faucet hose free and rugged.

This is mounted on a stainless steel beer ball lock and fits perfectly on all KegLand brand kegs and Mini Kegs.

These fit modern kegs only: If you have older USA made ball lock kegs, you will find this ball lock fitting does not fit as it is machined a bit tighter than the old standard. These fit KegLand, AEB, Old Ale,Torpedo, and other modern kegs, BUT DO NOT FIT OLDER CORNELIUS, SPARTANBURG, FIRESTONE, ALLOY PRODUCTS, AND OTHER OLD UNBRANDED KEGS.


 

  • This gets you an Intertap – Hands on Review – along with the stuff to hook it up to a ball lock keg for portable serving.
  • This combo is on sale for $39.99.
  • Shipping is free or reasonably priced flat rate to addresses in the contiguous US depending on your order size for most items.

Top Content Countdown… Our 8th Most Popular Review of 2021!… Hands on Review: NukaTap Forward Sealing Beer Faucets!

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.


NukaTap Beer Faucet

There are several different beer faucets to choose from when equipping your keezer. The most basic type differentiation is forward sealing versus rear sealing. The rear sealing are the most common type you will find in bars, with a sliding piston visible that comes out through the front of the faucet. Those faucets don’t do well unless you have a continuous flow of beer like is found in a bar. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you pour a lot of beer so the rearward sealing faucets will be fine. They’ll gum up and stick and you’ll be cursing that decision! So the popular homebrew faucets are forward sealing.

The long-time favorite forward sealing faucet for homebrewers was the Perlick brand, but they were expensive. Kegland introduced Intertap – Hands on Review – with a design variation of the forward sealing faucet and a more affordable price. Now Kegland has improved on their Intertap design with the new Nukatap faucet. As everything I’ve tried/researched from Kegland, they take a product and then engineer specific improvements to it- either to make it available at a lower cost or for specific improved homebrew functions.

With the Nukatap, Kegland focused on improving/reducing the propensity of beer to foam while being poured. Beer foaming is simply the act of dissolved CO2 coming out of the beer and then converting to gas at the surface of your beer. Cold beer can hold more CO2 than warm beer, so as carbonated beer warms, it causes CO2 to come out of solution and thus create foam. Similarly, beer under pressure can hold more CO2 than beer that is not under pressure. So as beer goes from the pressurized keg and into your unpressurized glass, this also causes CO2 to come out of solution and create foam.

Nukatap on Left, Intertap on RightNukatap on Right, Perlick on Left

The first design action Kegland did for Nukatap was on the sealing mechanism. One big challenge at fighting beer foam is how to get the beer around the sealing mechanism inside the faucet. Perlick faucets use a ball to seal and shut off the flow. As beer passes by the ball, the flow creates a low pressure zone on the backside of the ball, and thus beer goes from high pressure to low inside the faucet, creating an opportunity to foam. Intertap faucets use a football-shaped shuttle inside the faucet. This shape is less prone to the low pressure zone like a sphere has. Nukatap has a variation on the Intertap football shape, and Kegland kept tweaking it to keep the flow calm as it passed around the sealing shuttle inside. The shape ended up looking like an old-school atom bomb, and hence the “Nuke tap” name was born.

Amazon Gift Card to Spend?… Tapcooler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler for Forward Sealing Faucets + Hands on Review

Tapcooler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler for Forward Sealing Faucets

Tapcooler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler for Forward Sealing Faucets

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Fill bottles of beer, directly from your tap/faucet with this innovative counter pressure filler.
  • Improves upon standard counter pressure fillers, as it plugs DIRECTLY into your draft system faucet (tap). Most solutions require you to hook up a separate liquid line, which is not something standard draft systems have setup and requires additional prep (i.e. more time). With the Tapcooler, you can have it setup and ready to go in less than a minute!
  • Connecting your CO2 line is also a snap. You can either hook up directly with a 3/16 in. push-fit line, or connect your line to the included barb fitting.
  • With the Tapcooler design, your beer AND CO2 are filled from the bottom of the bottle through the telescoping bottle connection tube. First CO2 flows down into the bottom of the bottle to flush from the bottom up. Next you open the tap and beer flows down the same tube, filling from the bottom up. The result is a more effective purging of oxygen and little to no foam during the filling process.
  • The filler features a push button CO2 purge valve which allows you to purge the bottle of oxygen before & after filling. It also includes an adjustable pressure relief valve, giving you the ability to change the filling speed. The pressure relief valve also acts as an overflow port for excess beer/foam to escape when filling.
