Beer Care Dispense Solutions line cleaning guide

(Ring main cleaning system)


How to clean draught beer lines step by step (ring main, non-pressurised cleaning vessel)


1. Remove the keg coupler(s) from the keg(s) and connect to the wall mounted cleaning sockets. For best cleaning results switch off any of the beer coolers.

2. Make sure that each gas line that is usually on and feeding the keg is turned off (switches that are running the gas pumps (black boxes) can be left on). If any of the gas lines to the kegs are left on the floats in the fob detectors will keep dropping and you will have to keep filling them back up again.

3. Fill the vessel with fresh water

4. Always follow the manufacturers instructions with regards to soaking time and rations

5. Switch on the gas valve to the cleaning pump that is connected to the line cleaning bottle.

6. Open each of the beer taps and pull through all of the beer in the line until you reach the water. Then add the correct amount of beer line cleaner (always check the ratio on the bottle or manufacturers instructions) to your cleaning bottle and fill up with water and pull through until line cleaner has filled the system/lines .

7. Once you are at the line cleaner go into the cellar and bleed any air out of the fob detectors to make sure the whole thing is cleaned

8. Let it soak in the lines for 10 mins, pull enough through to ensure that it’s fresh cleaner throughout the lines (you should get an idea of how much by the amount of beer dispensed before you get to the line cleaner), and allow it to soak for 10 mins until you have done this with 3 x ten minute soaks and the line cleaner should be clear (or purple if you are using a purple beer line cleaner)

9. Rinse out line cleaning bottle thoroughly to ensure there is no line cleaner in it and fill with fresh clean cold water (or alternatively you can have separate, identifiable vessels for water and line cleaner) 

10. Flush with water. Make sure that you pull plenty of water through each tap

11. After you have flushed with water make sure bleed the fobs (if you have them installed) a bit to rinse the cleaner from the top of the fobs and the bleed pipe

12. Reconnect each beer line to the correct kegs and turn back on the gas that you switched off. Don’t forget to turn off the gas valve to the line cleaning pump.

13. Open the beer taps and pull through all of the water until you are back to beer again.

14. Return to the cellar to bleed the water out of the top of the fobs when the kegs are back on
