So this past weekend I actually used my beergun for the first time, bottled a very hoppy IPA. Did not even think once to clean or sanitize the C02 lines, and even used the same C02 line that I use to carbonate my kegs and attached that to the beer gun, thus thinking the C02 line in the accessory kit was unnecessary.
My processwas I cleaned the bottles with PBW, then used sanitized with starsan, then used the beergun to purge, then fill and cap. Drank the first one yesterday, 3 days after bottling, and it tasted a little funky. My first question, is any tiny amount of starsan left over going to affect the flavor? Is the consensus to sanitize and clean the c02 line going into the beer gun?
