How to Install and Operate the BREWHA Keg Cleaner

This manual keg washer is an economical way to manually clean kegs.

The cleaner can stand alone or be set inside a BREWHA Large fermenter or 120L Mash Tun. Once spears are pulled, kegs can be inverted and dropped down onto the cleaner.

When cleaning multiple kegs, it is simplest to first rinse them all by connecting the Keg Cleaner to tap water (the bottom fermenter port should have a hose ran to a drain). Once all kegs are rinsed, then the fermenter cone can be filled with water, the water heated close to boiling, and a pump connected to recirculate and heat sanitize the kegs with the hot water. (Or, if desired, an alkaline or acidic wash can be circulated through the kegs, the kegs rinsed, and a sanitizer added for the final cycle.)

For cleaning keg spears, the Sanke Fermenter to Keg Racking Hose can be connected to the pump and a spear, and cleaning/sanitizing solution ran from the fermenter, through the pump, into the Fermenter to Keg Racking Hose, into the Sanke connector, down through the spear, and back into the fermenter. (Note: if running liquid through the Sanke connector in the reverse direction (e.g. down into the spear) the ball or rubber stop valve that prevents back flow into the keg needs to first be removed; it generally just fall outs if the connector is removed)

Will this work with a small BIAC?
