Beer Line Cleaning
Clean those beer lines!
Let’s face it. Line cleaning is one of the most time consuming, and least exciting tasks of running your bar. When you don’t clean your lines frequently enough, you’ll know it, and more importantly, your patrons will know it.
Within days of tapping a new keg, deposits begin to accumulate within the lines, and your dispensing faucets.
Beer Nerd Factoid about Beer Stone
During the brewing process, calcium and oxalic acids or salts are combined and at cold temperatures, resulting in Calcium Oxalate deposits known as beer stone. Beer stone will build up and eventually flake off on the inside of the beer tubing if the system is not properly cleaned.
Dispensing a lot of craft beers from small brewers? You may have noticed your beer lines are white or gray in color. That’s thanks to active yeast residue build-up.
Are you seeing black or brown build-up within your lines or couplers? That’s usually mold and/or bacteria growth. If you beer smells or tastes musty or like a wet bandaid, it’s infected.
