I was wondering about everyone’s Beer Line Cleaning regimen. I searched on this, and I think I’m doing all right, but I was just curious about what everyone else is doing and if I’m doing it well enough.
After each keg empties, I rinse it well with hot water, removing both the gas and liquid posts, and rinsing them, as well as the dip tube. I then put the keg back together and fill it with 2 capfuls of BLC and water.
I put this keg into the kegerator and hook it up to the faucet it was attached to. I run about 3 pints through the line/faucet and then will leave it for at least 24 hours. I will then remove 3 pints of the cleaner-water again, empty the keg and sanitize before adding fresh beer to it.
My lines are clear, but stained. Beer colored. Am I using enough BLC?
Any comments and especially what your lines look like would be great.
