Interesting. I'm a bottle kind of guy and I'll use any kind of bottle that takes a cap, no matter the previous contents. I even go to the recycling center and pull out bottles there which usually are full of nasties - they clean up fine. Was just curious about the root beer thing. I guess just because root beer is one of the more flavorfull pop's it tends to stick around huh?
The big difference is the rubber seals inside the keg. The rubber holds the flavor and smell just about forever.Glass does not. Stainless is easily cleaned. Rubber needs to be replaced.
While I'm not afraid of caustic, I've never used it for cleaning.How about a simple how to? What chemical, how much/strong, temps, how long?Thanks
Wow! Glad I stumble upon this as I made plans to brew some root beer with my son, keg-carb it and bottle/jug it. Will it retain the flavors even if it's only in there for a few days?
Glad I caught this thread as I have a keg filled with root beer right now. I'll probably just dedicate it to root beer.
