    A keg tap is extremely important in your home brewing system, since it’s what dispenses the beer. The right tap will dispense your brew with just enough carbonation. It also won’t leak or stutter. Most keg taps sold in the United States will be for a “D” coupler, but if your brewing setup isn’t American, you may need another type, such as the European “S” or the German “A” slider. Materials are typically stainless steel, brass, chrome, or some combination. Since carbonation is important in getting a satisfying brew, some keg taps have a form of pressure regulation. Installation should be easy, since problems can damage your brew. The keg tap should also be easy to clean to avoid the transfer of flavors.
