FAQ

If you don't see the answer to your question here, contact us at sales@trailkeg.com!

What is the meaning of life?

To share quality time with family and friends. And to do that outside, in the beauty of nature, while sharing a great local craft beer or homebrew creation. 

 

What growlers will lid package fit?

Check out our Compatible Growler page. 

 

What type of CO2 should I use?

Use threaded (3/8x24) 16gram CO2 cartridges. We recommend food grade since food grade cartridges are cleaned more thoroughly during the manufacturing process. Cartridges that are not food grade will have traces of oils in the CO2 that create an off flavor. Of course you can always buy them here from us.

 

How long will a CO2 cartridge last?

A 16gram CO2 cartridge will dispense slightly more than two 64oz growlers if no CO2 is vented or leaked during usage.

 

Do I need to leave the regulator connected at all times?

Not at all. Both the regulator and your TrailKeg will seal when they are disconnected. You can even dispense without connecting the regulator. Only time it needs to be connected is when you are adding pressure to the growler.

 

I'm getting alot of foam when I dispense. How do I correct this?

Different beers have different dispense pressures. If you're getting foam, start by dropping the dispense pressure to around 5psi. You may also need to let the beer settle if it has been shaken recently (during transport). As well, if the beer has been stored at a higher PSI (store an IPA at 15psi over night, you'll have alot of foam), the beer could be over carbonated.

 

I think I may not be getting a good seal somewhere. What should I do?

Fill your growler two thirds full of water, then pressurize the growler to 10psi. With the growler upright, spray water on all connection points, including where the lid seals with the growler. Look for bubbles.

 You can also pressurize a completely empty growler and completely submerge it in water, it just uses more CO2 in the process.
