Please note: although the black coating is durable the tap needs to be handled carefully to avoid chipping the black coating. The upgraded stainless spout helps prevent this.

From the Manufacturer:

First Pour Foam Reduction

The reduction in thermal mass significantly reduces the first pour foam effect.  The tap is often the warmest part of the draft system as it protrudes from the font/tower/fridge.  As a result, it acts like a heat sink and only works well once enough cold beer flows through it to cool the tap body down.  This reduction of thermal mass significantly improves the foam that is poured while the tap is cooling down.

 

Durable Black Coating
Many customers ask "how durable is the black coating".  We powder coat the stainless steel with a black coating that is as durable as we can find.  Although it's not as durable as Nukatap SS the black coating is still very durable and exceeds the ASTMD968-83 abrasive testing.



Laminar Flow
The NUKASHUTTLE design is the world’s first seamless shuttle.  After many months of modeling and testing this new "NUKE" shaped shuttle design has the most fluid dynamic shuttle shape ever manufactured for a forward sealing tap.  The streamline "nuke/missile" shape is how this new innovation earned its name "NUKATAP".  This leap forward in laminar flow means even highly carbonated beers pour like a dream with minimal turbulence and giving you the perfect pour every time.  


Most Sanitary Design
The NUKASHUTTLE is the world’s first seamless single-piece design.  Traditional taps have a seal that is seated on a stainless-steel body creating small fissures that harbor solids, are potential sites for infection, and are not as ideal for clean in place (CIP).  The NUKASHUTTLE is an advanced TPV rubber matrix that been seamlessly formed over a durable PP skeleton. This single-piece design takes away the traditional fissures found in older manufacturing methods.


Long Life Seals
Unlike many other taps that use rubbers that can be degraded with caustic and acid compounds, the NUKATAP has been made to suit a wide range of conditions.  It's becoming more common to see sour beers/kombucha and other acetic and lactic acid beverages dispensed using draft systems.  These acids, in particular, could cause an attack on the sealing compounds resulting in downtime, loss of product and reduced maintenance intervals.
The NUKATAP solves this problem and is the most chemically resistant tap we have ever manufactured.  Unlike some older tap styles that have "metal on metal" rubbing components that can wear over time and have a "raspy feel" the NUKATAP has been manufactured with a smooth gliding action that guarantees the longevity of the tap components.  The TPV rubber matrix shuttle is also one of the most durable sealing mechanisms that can tolerate large amounts of leverage force from long tap handles that would otherwise traditionally degrade the seals in other tap designs.

Other forward sealing designs exist but nothing with the same level of reliability. It’s easy to find other “perl” forward sealing design taps however these taps use a floating o-ring design which by all means is equally as sanitary however the floating o-ring requires the oring to move within the tap body to seal correctly. This movement is typically a problem as the tap ages and/or is not serviced regularly. The NUKATAP bypasses this seal as the entire NUKASHUTTLE is a single sealing piece.


Tap Handle Angle - 2.5degree Reverse Angle
The new NUKATAPS have been manufactured with a 2.5degree reverse angle.  This allows for a wider range of taps handles to be used, in particular, long and/or heavy handles to work perfectly irrespective of the installation conditions.

 

Forward Sealing Design
Just like the Intertap and its predecessors, the NUKATAP shuts off the flow at the front of the tap which in turn keeps wild yeast and bacteria out of the interior of the tap body. Put end to substandard beer and only use the all-new NUKATAP

What does Rear Sealing Design Mean?
Typically most beer taps use a rear sealing design and the beer in the tap drains from the body of the tap with the help from a vent hole drilled at the front of the tap. This drainage hole is a dark and wet cavity and is an ideal place for airborne bacteria and wild yeast to reproduce leaving a foul film that deteriorates the quality of your beer. Every time the faucet is opened contamination occurs.

Brewing frequently asked questions

How long does it take to brew beer?

The time it takes to brew beer can vary, but on average, the process takes about 4 to 6 weeks. This includes the various stages such as malting, mashing, boiling, fermenting, conditioning, and bottling. However, some beer styles may require longer aging periods for optimal flavor development.

Is home brewing worth it?

Many people find home brewing to be a rewarding and enjoyable hobby, allowing them to create unique and customised beers. It provides a deeper understanding of the brewing process and offers the opportunity to experiment with different ingredients and styles. Additionally, home brewing can be cost-effective in the long run compared to purchasing craft beers. However, it requires time, effort, and a certain level of commitment. Whether it's worth it ultimately depends on one's passion for brewing and the satisfaction derived from the process and the end product.

Is home brewing legal?

Home brewing for personal use is generally legal, and there is no need for a specific license as long as certain conditions are met. Home brewers are allowed to produce beer, wine, and cider for personal consumption. However, there are limits on the amount that can be brewed without a license. As of January 2022, the limits were 100 litres for beer and 100 litres for wine per household.

It's important to stay informed about any updates or changes in the regulations, so it's advisable to check with local authorities or brewing associations for the most current information regarding home brewing laws in the UK. Always ensure that you comply with the relevant regulations and guidelines to enjoy home brewing within the legal framework.
