In a skillful hands the draft tower turns into a magic tool leading to a great result; freshly tapped, properly chilled beer Malastrana with compact, thick even creamy foam and medium carbonation.

Original Czech beer drafting with Malastrana tower:

Take a clean, wet and tempered beer glass;
Position the glass under the beer faucet, tilt it at a 45° angle and put the faucet into the glass;

Open the tap lever at 20 degrees and create foam for one third of the glass;
Keep the glass in the position and open the lever at 90°, till the foam raises up to the glass edge;

Straighten the glass and close the tap before the foam reaches the glass edge.
Do not leave the tapped glasses under the faucet, to prevent further drops from falling into the foam and modifying the result.

Another essential procedure of appropriate tapping is regular cleaning of the draft beer towers and all of beer pipes to avoid contamination.
Daily cleaning procedure should consist of rinsing the spike of the tap, the hitcher and the tap with cold water. Wash carefully the filling heads with clean drinking water and a special brush.
Fill the spike with cold drinking water after you finish tapping (we recommend the pipes to be filled with water until the beginning of the next shift).
