Below is a table that details the dimensions and volume that each of our mini kegs and growlers can hold. It also includes the height of each of the taps as well as the max volume allowed when using Nitro.
Please ensure you consider the height of both the vessel and tap. However the taps can be removed at any time to allow you to store the keg lying down (or standing if you have room) This will leave the keg with a spear (6cm) on it (this has the valves that the tap connects to).

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.
Very good, pleased with the creamy head on my ale
It looks great and works even better. Another quality purchase from Ikegger. Thank you
All items I have received and used are tops as a beginner I have had good experience from you thanks so much
Very happy with my new tap my stout has much smother head all-be it small but great
The delivery was very quick and the stout tap works great on my barrel of Kilkenny. Definitely work buying for such beer.
