    Last run of kegs I cleaned I did what dick said to do, and it worked well.

    Im guessing that someone has done some real science re: how long acid/caustic must cascade down the inside walls of the kegs to be clean..... but what I'm doing is using common sense. Whether it's a pH 1.1 or pH 13.9 solution, their is no bug that's gonna survive that. Blow that out, rinse it with water, blow that out, sanitize it, snd purge it with CO2, and your done.

    I've opened a couple kegs after doing this, and they are spotless. They started as used old kegs and look great inside.

    Wash on my friends. Wash on.

    We just edited our liquid cycles caustic/water/acid to intermittent bursting.

    Blow out residues using compressed air after each cycle. You may need to shorten each cycle say 30 seconds a delivery burst, and then repeat them - which is in effect what the big commercial keg lines do.

    started a topic Liquid volume while keg washing??

    Liquid volume while keg washing??

    Question:

    When Keg washing, should one use a limited amount of fluid volume as is recommended for CIP of a tank, so there isn't a pool of water in the top of an upside-down keg??

    Reason I ask is that the outflow in my system doesn't keep up to the inflow, so the kegs fill up until the inflow is shut off.

    Thx.
