New year, new beer.  Got 3 kegs ready to tap (a bock that's been lagering since 11/1/19, an IPA, and an O-fest).

 

However, I know it's been a couple of months or more since my kegerator lines got a good deep-clean, so today is the day.  Not keen on serving fresh beer thru dirty lines. 

 

Kinda curious to see how much crud gets removed. 

 

BLC on deck, which will be recirc'd hot thru each line for 15 minutes (via pond pump), then rinsed, and then a last quick rinse with some more water laced w/ Starsan.

 

The faucets will get a teardown and scrub/soak in some hot Starsan, along with the liquid-out QDs, during the line cleaning.

My faucets are toast. I tried rebuilding a few a while ago and they leaked. I dunno, maybe I bought crap parts. I'm providing beer for a wedding and I can either use kegs or bottles. I'm thinking bottles will be easier.
