Hands on Review: NukaTap FLOW CONTROL 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 Flow Control Keg Faucet

There are a wide variety of options for how to take your kegged homebrew with you to a party or meet up with friends. There is a big draw to kegging your homebrew because of how it simplifies the process of serving your beer after it’s finished in the fermentor. But it’s obviously less portable than individual bottles. There are mini keg/growlers you can fill from the tap, or bottle fillers that you can connect right to your tap. But these options all come with the extra step of cleaning and filling additional “stuff”. Being able to serve directly from the keg has advantages from that perspective.

Flow Control Faucet Disassembled

The most common option of serving from the keg is the picnic tap/cobra tap attached to a length of beer tubing. The downside of cobra taps is their propensity to fail, or propensity of your partygoers to not know what they’re doing and end up spilling/wasting a lot of beer. A jockey box is great for a bigger event where you’re going to be pouring a lot of beer over a longer period of time. But these are expensive, big/bulky to haul around, and makes another thing that has an involved cleaning process afterwards.

There have been ball lock keg faucets out on the market for some time. But unless you’re using these on a growler with a restrictive dip tube in it, these aren’t very practical. Putting a regular faucet on a keg gives you a cup of mostly foam unless you take special care to nearly de-carb your beer first (and who likes flat beer?). For these to work properly when directly attached to a keg, you need a flow control faucet. Kegland’s ball lock shankReview – has the same interface as a regular keg shank like you have on your keezer, so they just mate this to their regular Nukatap. Then you can serve directly from the keg, and it’s not a big piece of gear to haul around with you or clean up later.

It features a usable range of 4 to 15 PSI, and the diaphragm construction means it has a wider pressure range than spring based spundling valves. This unit can be easily disassembled for cleaning using a phillips head screw driver. Accuracy of the gauge is plus or minus 2 PSI.


 

A Spunding Valve allows you to ferment under pressure, naturally and precisely carbonate in the keg, fix over-carbonated beers and lots more. See: Build a Spunding Valve – for loads of information on building and using a Spunding Valve.

Upgrading Kegland Inline Secondary Regulator to Digital

DuoTight Inline Regulator that has been updated to digital, see below for walk through of that process.

Multi-Pressure CO2 Options

Maintaining multiple CO2 pressures in your kegerator gives you the ability to… keep kegs at different pressures.  This is a requirement to maintain different carbonation levels. It’s also handy if you want to force carbonate a keg more quickly, at a higher pressure, while maintaining your standard serving pressure on a keg that’s already being served or if you want to have a utility line for purging kegs and such. continues below…

Upgrading Kegland BlowTie v1 Spunding Valve to Digital!

A Spunding Valve allows you to maintain a set pressure. If pressure in the vessel exceeds the set point, it is expelled. It generally consists of an adjustable PRV valve, a tee, a gauge and a way to connect to your keg.

Why a Spunding Valve?

There are loads of homebrew related applications for a Spunding valve ranging from pressurized fermentation to naturally carbonating to fixing over carbonated beers and lots more.  Check out our resource post on the subject.  It’s arguably the go-to resource on the Internet on the subject

Hands on Review: Kegland DuoTight Rigid Joiners

Rigid Joiner pictured with a check valve and DuoTight Ball Lock QD

Kegland’s DuoTight system along with their EVABarrier Tubing are amazing. Check out my extensive hands on review for a deep dive into the system.

This is a look at Kegland Rigid Joiners, part number KL18012.

These are designed to easily join DuoTight fittings together without using EVABarrier tubing.  That’s handy for close connections and if… gasp, you aren’t a DuoTight/EVABarrier user.  The rigid joiners allow you to put DuoTight parts and pieces together without purchasing an entire roll of EVABarrier.

Rigid Joiners, part number KL18012. To my knowledge these are available in 8mm only. I’d venture a guess that this is the most common size.

Kegland Ball Lock Line Cleaning Kit – $12.99 + Hands on Review

kegland ball lock cleaning pump

Ball Lock Line Cleaning Kit w/ Mini Party Pump

More Info

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

This simple pump kit is a great way to clean your draft lines when you don’t want to waste CO2 or mix up a full batch of line cleaner. The PCO tee piece can be attached to a PET beer bottle or repurposed soda bottle, then pressurized with the hand pump to push cleaner through your ball lock disconnect and draft lines.

You can also use the pump kit to turn just about any PET bottle into a mini party keg; one that’s easy to take with you while leaving your gas equipment at home. But since you’ll be using air to push the beer out, we recommend consuming the contents of the bottle well within 24 hours.

Kit Contains:

Yellow carbonation cap
Red Tee Piece – 28mm PCO 1881 Threads (Female x Male x Male)
Mini yellow hand pump
11.75″ length of EVABarrier tubing (5mm ID x 8mm OD)
PET Bottle not included
KegLand Part Number: KL20220


 

This gets you a PET carbonation cap + a carbonation cap tee + pump + dip tube. Together this combo can be used to clean draft lines, as a party pump for portable serving or as separate components.

This is an extremely versatile piece of gear. Check out my in depth Hands on Review
