  • What is the shelf life of a Blade keg?

    We guarantee good beer quality of fully sealed Blade Keg for at least 1 month after purchasing from our website. Once you’ve opened your Blade Keg, the beer is guaranteed to stay fresh for 30 days, if stored in a running Blade. You can find the best-before date on the side of your Keg. We guarantee the quality of the beer up until the date on the keg.  After this date, quality may decrease. In general, we recommend storing your Keg in a cool and dry location, for instance the fridge. That will ensure the best beer taste and experience.

  • How should I store kegs?

    Store the keg on a cool place and pre-cool the kegs in the fridge at least 24 hours prior to use. The keg should ideally be chilled to 4 ⁰C.

  • Can I put kegs in my freezer?

    No. The keg should not go below zero degrees as this may damage the packaging and cause beer leakage. You will no longer be able to use the keg once frozen. DO NOT FREEZE the keg as it may explode if frozen.

  • How long does it take to chill a keg?

    We recommend that kegs are pre-chilled in the fridge for 24 hours before use. Cooling down a keg directly in the appliance will take more than 24 hours.

    If the keg is pre-chilled at 4 ⁰C, you can start serving right after placing the keg in the appliance. For best results, ensure the needle is pointing at the bottom of the temperature dial before pouring.

  • Can I take out a keg before it is empty?

    Once a keg is open, you have to keep it in your Blade appliance. You can store the
    open keg for up to 30 days. This will keep the keg at the right pressure and freshness.
    You can take the keg out before it is empty, but once removed it should not be
    consumed.

  • Can I open a keg and serve it like a can or glass bottle?

    No, the keg is specifically designed to be used with Blade. The beer or cider inside the keg needs to be kept under controlled pressure, otherwise it will not be the quality you would expect.

  • Can I use kegs with other home draught appliances?

    No, the 8-litre keg is designed specifically for the Blade appliance.
