1. Use the correct connector
Your pipe must have the right tap or pump to distribute the liquid. Most connectors you can get in Canada use a fully compatible US-D system to fit your barrel. At Barrels Online we will include this key with your purchase!
2. Calm down
Once you've brought your cask, you'll need to take it to where you set it up and let it sit for at least a few hours. Keep in mind that it can come remotely, like in a delivery vehicle, then in the hands of the supplier next to you, then in your kitchen, and so on.
You need to freeze your cask before using it. This is important because you will enjoy a perfectly poured drink, not just a glass of foam. Another thing that can help is to use a plastic bag to fill the ice on the sides of the barrel and keep it tight.
