So, after I finished off a keg, I cleaned it out and filled it will about two gallons of star-san sanitizer (made with distilled water). I put about 5psi of CO2 pressure in it, and then I decided to leave it like that until I have another batch to put into it.


Question #1: Are there any problems storing star-san in a corny keg for a few months?

Question #2: Any other recommendations for storing a cleaned and sanitized keg?

Also, to clear/clean/sanitize my beer lines, I ran fresh water from a pressurized keg through the lines and out the faucet. Next, I ran some PBW solution out of the keg I was cleaning. Then some more fresh water. Last, I ran some  of the star-san solution through to sanitize. I decided to leave the star-san in the beer line until it was going to be needed again.


Question #3: Is there a problem with storing a beer line with star-san in it?

Question #4: Any other recommendations for storing a cleaned and sanitized beer line?

Thanks in advance for any input!

Kegging and Bottling / race-track keg lids
« on: July 21, 2010, 06:31:18 PM »
So, what is the story with race-track lids? Some internet searching indicates that they are rare, and can be a pain to work with.

I managed to acquire a few recently, and I am trying to decide if they are worth continuing to use.

So, some questions:

1) Why do people consider them to be a pain? They seem simple enough to me.

2) I imagine they use the same post o-rings as standard lid kegs, but what about the lid? Wishful thinking has me thinking that the circumference of the race-track lids is the same as the round lids, and therefore the lid o-ring will be the same. Anyone know anything about this? (I don't have any round-lid kegs to personally try this out.)
