Based on my estimated, home beer making is about 75% brewing and 25% cleaning.  I had recently drained a couple of kegs so today it is time for me to clean them and my taps in preparation for my experimental Oktoberfest Ale and my next to be determined batch of homebrew.  Thankfully for home brewers, there are cleaning solutions out there like PBW home brewing clean that can help with the job.

 

How to clean a keg

My keg cleaning process is pretty simple. I place a keg tap head on the output post of the keg, so that the dip tube of the keg can pass fluid, I then flush the keg post and dip tube with water and rice any yeast, trub or particulates from the keg.  After doing that 2 to 3 times until the keg is visibly clean, I add in a scoop of PBW and fill the keg up to the rim with PBW solution. I then allow it to sit for at least an hour.  I then flush the keg and dip tube again and inspect the keg.  At this point I may or may not remove the posts for a more complete cleaning and run a brush through the dip tube.  I then spray sanitize the kegs for storage.

If you need home brewing cleaner, I highly recommend PBW ( Powdered Brewery Wash).  It is fantastic.  Whatever you do, do not use household dish soap unless you have no other choice.  I dish washing detergent would be a better choice.  For a food grade sanitizer I recommend star san.  They both can be purchased via the following link at a great price!
