2/3 - How to pour the perfect beer?

CHECK THE TEMPERATURE

Make sure the beer is cold enough to serve. The light on THE SUB® will turn green when the beer has reached the right temperature. You can speed up the super-cooling by turning on THE SUB® an hour before use and by using pre-chilled TORPS®.

RINSE THE GLASS

For the perfect draught, use a clean glass and rinse it with cold water.

TILT 45°

To pour like a pro, hold the glass at a 45 degree angle to THE SUB®'s tap. This helps to get the right foam level in the glass.

THE POUR

Keep your glass in position and pull the handle to pour. When the glass is almost full, slowly tilt the glass back upwards and push the handle to stop the pour. You can control the level of foam by increasing the angle of the glass for less foam or decreasing it for more. The perfect head is two fingers of foam.

SKIMMING

Use a wet skimmer to cut off the foam crown on top of the glass. This creates a water seal that locks in the flavour.

1/3 - How to set up THE SUB?

Attach the tube

Take the tube from inside the TORP's cap and insert it into the mouth of the TORP. Push until you hear a click and make sure it's securely attached before loading the TORP into THE SUB.

INSERTING THE TORP

Insert the TORP® into THE SUB® bottom end first. Using a pre-chilled (fridge temperature) TORP will speed up the cooling process to 2°C.

CONNECT THE TUBE

Open the cover of THE SUB®'s tap and lead the TORP®'s tube along the backside of the tap head. Place the tube's spout inside the tap head and click it into position. Make sure the tube is firmly attached on both ends and close the tap cover.

CLOSE THE SUB®

Close and lock THE SUB®'s door. The TORP® should have a firm fit, but you shouldn't have to force the door. If the door does not close easily, make sure the TORP is properly placed as far back in its chamber as possible.

PREPARE THE PUMP

Right after loading a new TORP®, prepare the pump by holding down the handle for a second until the pump activates. Release the handle to stop pouring. Your beer is ready to enjoy at 2°C when THE SUB®'s light turns green.
