This isn’t about the OP. You made a recommendation that many others would determine is unsafe. You and others can do whatever they hell they want, but somebody should point out he stupidity of your recommendation.

Now excuse me while I make toast in the tub.

BLC is the same thing as drain cleaner.

Just pointing out the dangers. First thing I learned in chem lab was to never under any circumstances drink from a piece of lab ware. Even if it is brand new and outside of a lab setting. It’s the same as always assuming a firearm is loaded.

KCl tastes pretty bad as a direct sub for salt on food.  Maybe it tastes ok diluted in beer?  Don't want to find out.  Determining the 'magical' mystery water from over hyped juice beer breweries is not worth chasing.
+1 on the hype

That’s cool and all, but people don’t always consider these things and assume everything we buy is safe enough.

See the linked article above. Some tool left cleaner in the lines and the customer suffered in a big way.

No idea if one is more concentrated than the other. I use LLC because that is what MoreBeer sells and I was placing an order with them.

Be careful leaving caustic and alkaline chemicals in draft lines. It’s easy to forget about those sort of details or an unsuspecting buddy may pour himself a bloody stomach.

It's pretty hard to pour a pint full of caustic when the line isn't attached to a keg.  I use a hand pump line cleaner and remove the line from the keezer.
Somebody could connect a keg or maybe you forget and connect a keg. Just pointing out that extra care needs to be taken if leaving dangerous chemicals in the lines for an extended period of time.

Also, it wouldn’t take much to cause some serious internal damage.

Five Star Liquid Line Cleaner is lye. Being a liquid makes it dissolve more easily than crystals. Always add lye to water and never the other way around.

Sure, but not all of us keg and kegs are a valuable item inventory.

I don’t fully agree with Martin. While autolysis risk may be low, oxidation risk is higher with the excess head space. Bulk aging big beers in a properly purged and filled to capacity vessel is useful.

Leave the lid off and valve open while it dries next time.

While I don’t sanitize my tuns, I would use a little iodophor or peroxide to get rid of something like that.

They exist, Bryan Rabe uses them in his kegging procedures.

What's it like to clean a keg that DH was done in?  This cannot be easy.

Rinse it out, hit it with some Craftmeister, that's it.
Just don’t let it sit dry for a long time. Stuck on hop crud sucks to get off. I miss the days I could reach the bottom of a keg with a scrub pad.
