Keg/carboy washer

Postby triple-oh_six » Wed Oct 08, 2008 9:28 pm

For those who missed it at the last meeting:

I bought a pump a while back to recirc ice water through my chiller.
I decided to give my pump some more work, not to mention that I love gadgets,
.......... and I'm lazy

I had the ball-valves already so the rest of the parts cost less than $10

Image

I use quick disconects for my chiller too so it's easy to interchange.

Image

The ball-valves make it easy to get flow up the liquid-out dip tube.

Image

It's more stable than it looks in this pic.

I used some foam control in the PBW, seemed to work great.

Prost,

I like the idea, but I still think my bottle brush would be more effective. But hey, if it works for you . . .

I think it is a cool idea. Do you get enough pressure from that sump pump to really clean? Has anyone tried to make a "steam generator", something to turn water straight into steam.

It works great, I use hot water and PBW which elliminates elbow grease.

There is plenty of pressure and some of the holes are alligned with where the trub ring usually forms.
