Removing keg lube?

<< < (3/4) > >>

bluesman:
I have a tube of keg lube that I've had for 5 years and its still going strong. A lifetime is a strong word but may be true for me.

grod:
Keg Lube = spit, right?

Just like all other lube, or am I missing something?

fugglupagus:
I’ve also wondered about lube removal.  Not so much because it might touch the beer.   But over time couldn’t it become a potential source of contamination?

I suppose it could.  I still don't worry about it, but if it is a big concern I just wouldn't use it at all.  Replace o-rings when they get old and you don't really need it.

fugglupagus:
Mostly I don’t worry either.  But I have one fussy keg with a slight dent in its lip.  Sometimes it takes a liberal application of lube, a little magic, and more than a few swear words to get the lid to seal.  Afterwards it’s a bugger to clean.
