    Care Instructions
    Your Tubbies keg has been handcrafted to Tubbie exact specifications using seasoned American White Oak (from used red wine barrels) with solid chrome or brass tap and steel or brass fittings. This keg is suitable for the maturation of young bulk port and other fortified wine, as the oak will carry out the natural maturation process.
    Please follow the advice below to ensure your keg will be a continuing source of pride and satisfaction for many years to come.

     

    DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

    Do not allow your keg to remain empty. Fill your keg as per instruction enclosed as soon as you receive it.

    To swell the oak, fill the keg through the bung hole with warm water.

    *Do not insert the bung during this process

    After 24 hours, empty the water out (through the bung hole) and repeat this process for 2 - 5 days or until there is NO leakage evident.

    Empty water out and fill with port immediately to avoid possible growth of mold.

    We recommend the first 'batch; be used within 6 months to avoid over wooding. Further batches may be left as long as desired.

    Always maintain your keg be at least half full to avoid drying and shrinkage of the oak, which will cause leakage.

     

    CAUTION:

    Do not submerge your keg in water.

    Do not store/display your keg in direct sunlight or near appliance which emit heat or drying air.

    Never leave your keg empty.

    Do not store water in the keg for longer than 48 hours, as the water will become stagnant and taint the keg.

    This keg is not suitable for storage of red and white table wines.

    Nice tap and was posted to me very quickly by Tubbies

    Not sure if my measuring was off or not, but I would say that for most home sized port or spirit kegs the medium tap would be the best fit, the large is too big and I had to widen the whole in my keg a bit. Also this tap doesn't have a tapered thread/shank so the whole needs to be the right size whereas there would be a bit more leeway with a tapered thread. All in all a nice tap and I cannot fault the service from Tubbies.

    Replacement Tap for my Port Barrel

    The old tap was very hard to open and close, and finally the handle snapped off completely. After emptying the barrel, I installed the replacement tap, and refilled it. The new tap works well, and is easy to open and close. Problem solved!
