Cleaning a kegerator/keezer lines

Post by X98agi » Fri Oct 21, 2016 10:06 pm

I just finished my first cleaning on my keezer, using five star chemical's BLC product. I removed the taps and flushed the solution through with a pond pump and then ran about 2 gallons of fresh water to rinse.

My question if there is anything else I should be doing? Should I run a sanitizer or is BLC enough?

I'm always worried about using a cleaning product with poison control information on it with a food product and just want to make sure I'm not killing anyone :-)

I usually just replace the lines clean and rinse with PBW - beer line is pretty cheap.

How often do people clean their lines? We have only had the keezer 6 months. Since you blow out the first couple glasses of a new beer, so far I have cleaned teach line after two kegs. Should I clean the lines after every new beer or less often?
