How long will keg last once used

We run mobile bars so may leave a job with half a keg or more of Becks/beer still remaining (60/40 mixed gas). If this keg is tapped, then taken off the lines and stored in a chilled cellar until next needed, how long can I expect it too retain it’s taste and freshness?
Google answers vary from 7 days to 4 months.

how long should a bottle of CO2 last with 11 gallon kegs

 

Co2-gas-reg how long should a standard bottle of CO2 last when used with 11 gallon kegs. we seem to be using one nearly for each keg.

Not sure how many kegs to a bottle you would get, it also depends if you are using gas pump as well.

However we do have a post in the forum which can give up to 14 kegs from a mixed gas bottlehttp://www.inndoctor.co.uk/answers/how-many-11s-37/

You obviously have a gas leak somewhere and should immediately call out Tech Services and keep the cellar well ventilated.

Co2 can be dangerous perhaps you should read this post as well. http://www.inndoctor.co.uk/answers/is-it-now-time-for-every-pub-to-have-co2-detector-481/

I have been fined because of a beer leak

Hi I was tapping a keg for the first time with a colleague. He has had training I have not. Unbeknownst to us there was a slow leak that over the ensuing five days lost the brewery the whole keg. They have now fined us both £150 each with immediate effect. Can they do this? I’ve been asked to do a job I’ve never done before and with no training
