Changing a Keg

This guide covers and will work with the changing of most keg coupler types. With an A-Type coupler you not be required to twist the coupler.

  1. Switch the gas supply off. Is can be done at the bottle or on the regulator connected to the keg coupler if present.
  2. When disconnecting a keg always have your head to one side and never directly over the connector. Ejection of beer spray could occur.
  3. Lift the handle upwards and twist the coupler anti-clockwise a quarter turn. Lift the coupler and release the gas from the line by holding the connector in one hand and depressing the handle
  4. Inspect the connector for cleanliness
  5. Always select the oldest full sealed keg to be connected. Remove the tamper proof cap and inspect the keg connection for cleanliness.
  6. Keeping your head to one side, place the keg coupler onto the keg connection. Twist the keg coupler a quarter turn clockwise, then depress the handle.
  7. Switch the gas supply on
  8. Remove the empty keg to the designated area
