YUCK! Do Not Let this Happen to Your Beer Line!

By the time you see this:

it is far too late–especially if you have company or customers waiting.

I will take a few questions.  Yes, sir–you in the front row.

How do you prevent mold and bacteria from growing in your faucet or your beer line?

That’s relatively easy!  Disassemble your faucet and coupler, use a gravity-fed or pump system to run cleaner through your beer line and then clean your faucet and coupler by hand.  Remember to put everything together–and do not strip or cross-thread any connections.

Okay–the lady in the back.

Isn’t there an easier way?

Sure!  Hire a company to clean your system every two weeks (or thereabouts).  They will be there on-schedule and unseen; cleaning your beer lines every two weeks magically at night when no customers are there to be inconvenienced.  And then the bill arrives.  Every two weeks–perhaps every month–the bill comes in from your cleaning service.  How much are you spending each year for that service?

Second row–you, sir.

Okay–how can I easily clean my beer line(s) myself?

There IS an easier way!  Use our beer line cleaner as shown on this blog.  Simply disconnect the coupler from the empty keg, connect to the cleaner keg and pour until it is empty.  Hook up to the new keg (dispose of the first 1/2 to 3/4 glass) and you are back in the game!

I still need to post our build photos to show the manufacturing process–the hand work is pretty intense!

For now, the completed prototype_A.  Prototype_B photos may follow (if Sean wants to share).

The fully modified, fully functional cleaner (side view):

The fine view from the top!  (What goes in there?)

Here’s what it looks like hooked up to a coupler:

And the cleaning setup:

Pouring cleaner:

Any questions?  We plan to soon have 10 ready to ship.
