Please note – when using any cleaning solutions or appliances, always use the correct PPE.
Choosing the correct bottle and cap:
If you are looking to clean one or two lines, then a smaller 5l bottle might be best for you.
If you are cleaning more lines, then a larger bottle may be more suitable.
When choosing your bottle, please ensure that you choose the correct cap that matches your keg coupler (there are some examples in the images above).
How to clean your lines using the Beer Line Cleaning Bottle (Pressurised Unit)
Please note – these are just guidelines, please always follow the instructions on the back of the cleaning solution that you are using.
1. Take the cap off your bottle and fill it with water (warm/cold depending on the cleaning solution) and your line cleaning solution. Please follow the instructions on the back of the cleaning solution bottle to ensure you have the correct ratio of cleaning liquid to water. Screw the cap with tube back onto the bottle.
2. Detach your coupler from your keg and attach to the bottle ensuring your gas regulator is still connected. The cleaning bottle will then pressurise and fill the line with the solution.
3. Place a bucket under the beer tap and then open it to pull through the liquid. When you see the cleaning solution start to come through, turn the tap off and allow for the liquid to sit and soak in the lines. The amount of time you should leave the liquid in the line for differs from manufacturer to manufacturer so please follow the instructions on the back of the cleaning packaging.
4. Once the necessary time has passed, open the tap with the bucket underneath and allow the solution to pull through.
5. Once the bottle is empty, disconnect the keg coupler from the cleaning bottle and then pull the pressure release valve and then remove the cap.
6. Discard any remaining liquid and then rinse the inside of the bottle with clean water.
7. Fill the cleaning bottle with fresh clean water and screw the cap with the tube back onto the bottle. Re-attach the keg coupler.
8. Put a bucket back under the beer tap and open the tap to allow the clean water to pull through the line. You should pull a minimum of 10 pints of fresh water through the line to ensure any residual cleaner is removed.
9. Once your line is clear of water, detach the keg coupler and release the pressure valve. It is recommended that you clean both your beer taps, beer tap nozzles and the keg coupler regularly.
10. Re-attach your keg coupler to the keg and open the beer tap to push out any remaining water.
