Sanke dip tube cleaning
« on: August 29, 2014, 10:11:46 AM »
Looking for a dip tube brush wide and long enough for a 5 gallon sanke kegs. At this length it will work for 1/2 bbl too. Thanks!

Is this in a pro brewing setting or something you're doing at home?

Sanke kegs used for finished beer are designed to be CIP. AFAIK, to use a brush on the spear you have to remove the whole thing.

I disassemble kegs to clean and sanitize every time. I am having a hard time finding a tube brush that is long enough to clean the 1" sanke dip tube in a 5 gallon keg.
