    Once Sanitized, how long do your kegs sit before filling?

    Doing some research and trying to find out what other breweries do. We have a two day window, meaning we can clean and sanitize (premiere stainless 3 keg washer station, using Caustic/PAA) and use them by the day after. If we dont, we re-clean them. It may be on the cautious side, but its worked so far. So, for those who clean/sani ahead of time, how long after they are sanitized do you fill them?

    And before you tell me to use the search function, yes I have already read the other posts in regards to this...i am simply asking for what other people use as SOP.

    I usually have to wash kegs every two to three weeks. So the kegs sit around 1-2 weeks.

    I agree, wasted work is not ideal. we discussed the same topic with a few brewers on the BA board and they have the same answer. They are comfortable with a few weeks once cleaned, sanitized and pressurized with CO2. Thanks for the input.
