Doc's keg washer

Tue Nov 15, 2005 9:25 am

Doc,

I remember a few (several) shows ago you were mentioning that you were going to post some pics of your keg/carboy washer. I must be looking in the wrong place as I can't seem to find them.

I know EVERYONE's been asking... alot!

They're not posted yet. I will have them (and others) up before the BN "gadget" show.
Cheers,

I have never seen Doctor Scott's washer but I think mine is a simplified version of it:

Works with kegs as well.

You must have seen it. I brought it into the club meeting a couple of times. Everyone who sees this work loves it.

That is the basic design, I use a tee off the main pipe to push pbw through the QD's of the keg. This way the dip tubes are cleaned too, and I don't have to dismantle the kegs.

You even use the same bucket I do! Cosco Kitty litter!

Just me Doc, but I try and keep that out of my carboy, might want to try that in the future yourself, save yourself some money on the kitty litter.

I looked at Beerpal's version of this (and I have seen Doc's too) and built one today. One trip to the hardware store and less than an hour of work.
This might be the greatest piece of equipment yet.
If you already have a submersible pump here is what you need:
Hack saw
36 in X 1/2 in PVC
1/2 in PVC cap
Milk Crate
Bucket
