[QUOTE=Squiggs;548526]Just picked up this lot today http://www.adverts.ie/crazy-random-s...eg-set/9564277 think I got a bargin but one of the taps has a curly dispenser has anyone seen these[

Well iv never seen the curly tap before and it wouldn't make sense to use a tap with the keg on its side as the down pipe just goes centrally down the keg so once the keg is on its side your only going to get half of the beer out with it on its side. Its got me stumped. The mini kegs and party star taps are German might be worth checking out the manufacturers website

Default CO2 question

Hi guys, I bought one of these recently and have used it twice, on both occasions, even though I turned the tap for the CO2 off 24hrs later it's empty.

I have tried this with a full keg and a partially full one.

Can anyone tell me how long their CO2 lasts for?

Also, how long does your beer stay drinkable before its becomes oxygenated once the tap has been inserted?

Thanks in advance.

Just finished my second keg with the same bulb. I tend to drink a keg over two weeks and stays fresh

It's something to do with photobucket. I think its asking the OP to update their account rather than you.

@Chippy_Tea knows more about this kind of thing than I do and will probably be able to answer your questions about this

I don't use photobucket but basically they said if their customers didn't pay they would lose all the pictures they linked to in forums.

Ok, something is not quite right with mine. I tried it yesterday and the bulb was empty when I went to refill my glass 30 minutes later.

Thanks in advance.

When you initially screwed the cylinder in, did you do so very quickly, i.e. can you be sure you didn't lose your 16g there and then? In my experience, that's the only way I've ever lost a whole cylinder in that short a time.

The next most likely culprit (and again this is from my experience!) is your beer being underprimed such that there was no pressure in the keg to begin with. How much priming sugar did you use and how long ago?
