- How much beer is in a TORP?
A TORP holds two litres of beer. This corresponds to about four 50cl pints.
- What are the dimensions of a TORP?
TORPS are 11cm in diameter and 26.9cm high, and weigh 2.1kg
- Can I use TORPS with other home draught appliances?
No, TORPS are designed specifically for THE SUB.
- What are the conditions of use for the TORP?
You can only use your TORP with THE SUB. To ensure the right quality of the product, keep the TORP chilled in THE SUB once opened. Do not expose the TORP to direct sunlight & store them below 30°C. Do not freeze the TORP.
Excellent beer quality is guaranteed for at least a few months after the purchase. Once the TORP has been opened, drink within 15 days. You can check the side of the TORP (or TORP sleeve) for the exact best-by date.
We recommend disposing of the TORP in an appropriate plastic waste stream. Actual realisation depends on local authorities.
- What is the shelf life of a TORP?
Once you’ve opened your TORP, the beer is guaranteed to stay fresh for 15 days, if stored in a running SUB. You can find the best-by date on the side of your TORP®. We guarantee the quality of the beer through the end of the month noted. After this date, quality may decrease. In general, we recommend storing your TORP in a cool and dry location, for instance the fridge. That will ensure the best beer taste and experience.
- How should I store TORPS?
Before use, keep TORPS in a cool, dark place. If there's room in your fridge, keep a spare TORP chilled and ready to use. Set the fridge at the lowest temperature and put the TORP on the lowest shelf – this is the fridge's coldest area. Do not place the TORP in direct sunlight, store the TORP below 30 degrees, or freeze the TORP.
- Can I put TORPS in my freezer?
No. The TORP should not go below zero degrees as this may damage the packaging and cause beer leakage. You will no longer be able to use the TORP once frozen.
- Why is my TORP taking so long to cool inside THE SUB?
The temperature of the TORP depends on the temperature in the fridge and the time the TORP has been in the appliance. If the temperature of the room is above 30 °C and the TORP has not been pre-chilled, it can happen that the light does not turn green. The temperature of the beer, in this case, is within 2 – 6 °C and still cooling. As long as the TORP has been in THE SUB for a couple of hours, it is not a problem that the light is still red.
- Can I swap out a TORP before it is empty?
Once a TORP has been opened, you need to keep it in THE SUB and keep THE SUB plugged in. This will keep the beer at the right pressure and freshness. You can take the TORP out before it is empty, but once removed it should not be consumed.
- Can I open a TORP and serve the beer like a can or glass bottle?
No, the TORP is specifically designed to be used with THE SUB. The beer inside the TORP needs to be kept under controlled pressure, otherwise, the beer will not be the quality you would expect. Piercing the TORP is not recommended as the sudden change in pressure could cause it to rupture.
- Is the TORP recyclable?
The TORP is made of PET plastic, and the recommendation is to dispose of the TORP in an appropriate plastic waste stream. Actual realisation depends on local collection systems and policies in place.
