First time kegging, and I'm taking it to a cookout. Primed with sugar and bought co2 charger to dispense, but which tap is better for pouring, a picnic tap or handle faucet. I went with the handle because I was thinking with no line I wouldn't have the cold-hot transfer with lots of foam, but somebody else said with no line resistance it might not be as good as the picnic with a 5' line. Is either one really better?
I like using my faucet when I take kegs to go, but you should be fine with either one. Number 1 priority should be proper serving temp, though. Get the keg good and cold before you head out, and keep it on ice. Don't apply the co2 until you need to.
