Cleaning Equipment & Sanitizing » Keg Sanitizing
Keg Sanitizing is essential to making good beer. The purpose of sanitizing a keg is to make sure that all surfaces which will later be in contact with beer come in contact with sanitizer for an appropriate amount of time to let the sanitizer do its job. Mix up a gallon or more of your favorite sanitizer and put it into your keg, put the keg lid on and pressurize the keg full of sanitizer to about 10+ PSI. Shake the keg around to make sure that all inside surfaces come in contact with the sanitizer. After the keg soaks for a good amount of time, place the tap on the keg and flush the remaining sanitizer out until the keg is empty.
