Guide to Starting Up a Bottoms Up Long Draw Draft Beer System

In this video we show you how to start up, prime out and program a pour size for a Bottoms Up Long Draw draft beer system with EKDs (empty keg detectors). We also show you what happens when you blow a keg and the EKDs are triggered. Start Up, Priming Lines and Programming a Size 1. Plug in and turn on each valve control pad 2. Each panel should be flashing, Empty Keg (this is a good thing) 3. In the Keg Room, turn the CO2 shut off valves from the regulators into the open position (assuming you have CO2 running) 4. Tap the first keg 5. Open the bleed off valve on the EKD allowing it to fill with beer and bringing the float sensor to the top. 4. Close the EKD bleed of valve OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR BEER 5. At the dispenser and on the valve you just tapped, press the prime button 6. Put the nozzle post for that valve into the down position and hold a cup over it. 7. With your other hand, press the start/stop button (bottoms up logo) 8. Beer will start pouring from the valve and might be foamy at first 9. Keep the beer pouring until the beer runs clear 10. Once clear, press the start/stop button to stop the flow of beer 11. Put the nozzle post in the up position and press the prime button to take it out of prime mode 12. Repeat steps 5-11 for additional lines. 13. Once you are ready to program a beer pour, press the manual button 13. Put a Bottoms Up vessel on the nozzle 14. Press and hold the size you want to program (S, M, L) until the beer starts to flow and then release holding the button 15. Once the beer reaches the desired level, hit the start/stop button. 16. Remove the vessel from the valve and press the Automatic button 17. You have now programmed that size and beer will fill automatically once placed on the valve. 18. Repeat steps 13-16 for additional valves and sizes. If the keg blows while pouring a beer, it will automatically stop and the empty keg lights on the control panel with start to flash. When this happens, do the following: 1. Go to the keg room and find the empty keg. 2. Verify that the EKD attached to that beer line is empty or that the float has dropped to the bottom of the EKD 3. Change the keg 4. Turn the EKD bleed off valve to the open position, filling the empty EKD with beer. 5. Once the beer float has reached the top of the EKD, close the bleed off valve. 6. Return to the valve and make sure the empty keg lights have stopped blinking. You are now ready to resume pouring the perfect beer.
