These taps are specifically designed for Stout and Nitro Coffee systems.
They have an action that allows pulling the handle forward for a continuous pour or pushing back for a burst of dense head.
They are more difficult to knock accidentally than other beer taps as they are spring-loaded to stay closed.
The liquid is forced through a nozzle on the tap with a restrictor plate in it. This is a circular disc with 5 small holes in it.
By forcing the liquid through these holes the dissolved Nitrogen is separated and as it releases into the glass it forms the cascading style head made famous by Guinness.
If the tap isn't flowing and everything else seems to be fine (keg is pressurised etc) then likely some sediment has blocked these tiny holes, remove the spout of the tap and clean them out to continue pouring.
You can use this as a normal beer tap by removing this restrictor from the spout.
The tap alone is for connecting to your existing system, it matches commonly available shanks and fonts. You can also use the drop-down menu to choose options for connecting directly to a keg with a steel or plastic connection.
