Adverse to using BLC? Think there other flushing products that let you pump cleaner through your lines.

I just use BLC, PBW & StarSan. The last 2 are probably overkill, but it makes me feel better & they both go from the keg, out the faucet, into a big pitcher & get poured back into the keg, so I'm only really wasting my own time.

BLC didn't seem to do much. Maybe I fucked up the concentration...

In my mind the BLC is removing the stone & other tough stuff which leaves the tubing open for the PBW to finish the job. Rinse, sanitize, drink mothafucka drink. Speaking of, we need a revival of that song! Moscow, you paying attention?

We (many Aussie pubs) use a two part solution called Bracton (brand name) DP1 & DP2 that are harmless & stable when kept separate but when mixed are really nasty and become neutral after 24hrs.

Brilliant stuff and very, very effective as a CIP cleaner.

There must be a US equivalent?
