How to clean keg draught beer lines - step by step
1. Turn off you remote/flash cooling system.
2. Remove each of the connectors from each keg and connect to the cleaning sockets on the wall. For best cleaning results switch off any of the beer coolers.
3. Make sure that each gas line that is usually switched on and running in to the keg is turned off (switches that are running the gas pump (black boxes) can be left on). If any of the gas lines to the kegs are left on the floats in the cellar buoys (glass bottles) will keep falling and you will have to keep filling them back up again.
4. Fill up your beer line cleaning bottle with cool water only to begin with.
5. Switch on the gas valve to the pump that is connected to the line cleaning bottle.
6. Open each of the beer taps and pull through all the beer in the line until you reach the water. This will help ease removal of any yeast later.
7. Now fill the beer line cleaning bottle with water and mix in the correct amount of beer line cleaner. Different brands of beer line cleaner have different dilution ratios... So better check on the back of the bottle first.
8. Open each of the beer taps and pull through the water in the line until you reach the beer line cleaner. Once you are at the line cleaner pull at least 2 pints through and allow it to soak for at least 20 minutes.
9. Draw through at least another 2 pints of beer line cleaner through and let it soak for another 10 minutes, then repeat this process until line cleaner is coming through clear.. or a steady purple if you are using a beer line cleaner that changes colour.
10. Rinse out line cleaning bottle to make sure there are no more of the cleaning chemicals in it and flush out the tap with clean water. Make sure that you pull plenty of water through each tap!
11. Reconnect each beer line to the correct kegs and turn back on the gas that you switched off. Don’t forget to turn off the gas valve to the line cleaning pump.
12. Open the beer taps and pull through all of the water until you are back to beer again.
13. Remember to turn of any coolers that were switched off at the beginning of this process.
