Tips || Perlick Beer Faucet 650SS With Flow Control

Removing your beer faucet

Use a facuet wrench, D1265, to remove a facuet from a shank or towers. The faucet wrench is specially made to grip onto the faucet collar without scratching or damaging it. In a pinch you can use channel lock pliers and a cloth to grip the faucet collar.

Faucet placement in a draft system - a caution

Okay so this may be common sense but we've seen it happen a few times. When deciding where to put your faucet make note that you may choose to get a larger, taller faucet handle in the future. Place your faucet in a location where it won't get hit, by a freezer door, by a cabinet door, or whatever else is around.  

If your draft faucet is stuck, first disconnect the keg from the beer line. Then remove the faucet from the shank or tower. Mix a small solution of PBW or BLC and hot water (approximately 140F), and let the faucet soak in for 30 minutes. Wearing rubber dish gloves remove the faucet and try moving the handle again. If it does not move yet, disassemble the faucet as much as you can and place it back in the PBW solution for another 30 minutes. If you don't have PBW (powdered brewery wash) or BLC (Beer Line Cleaner) try just using hot water.
