My PerfectDraft keg doesn’t taste as it should

Modified on Wed, 16 Mar 2022 at 10:30 AM

There are several reasons why your keg might not taste quite as good as it should. Take a look at the suggestions below, and if you are still having any problems, please get in touch!


  • When was the last time you have rinsed the tap unit? It could contain traces of old beer and affect the taste of your perfect pint
  • Try giving the keg a swirl before installing it in the machine, especially wheat beers. Never shake your keg!
  • Do you change the tube every time you change a keg? This could also contain old beer
  • Is the glass you are using clean?
  • What is the best before date on the keg? If it is a particularly old keg, this may affect the taste
  • How long has the keg been in the machine? We guarantee fresh beer for 30 days. After that, the taste could alter
  • Once opened, was the keg stored in a cool, dry place? If not it will not remain fresh otherwise.
