Target Pressures for resistance in draft systems

Target Pressure:       Beer must be maintained above freezing and below 42°F. in order to maintain proper freshness and carbonation. The chart below gives the target CO2 pressure to be set on the regulator for various temperatures to allow 6 weeks of perfectly carbonated beer. Remember that beer is best stored and served below a 40°F. keg temperature. Never set warm food on top of a keg to cool.

Draft Problems are usually very simple and easily fixed when you understand the facts. The linkes on this page will allow you to both set up your draft system and trouble shoot a system that has gone bad.

Before you get into trouble shooting a system make sure of following things:

Is the system Balanced?
Is the beer keg internal temperature below 42°F.?
Is your regulator gauge pressure set at the proper Pressure for the keg temperature?
Remember that all these parameters have been worked out over several hundred years and each parameter is very important in serving a perfect draft.
