Any other ideas?
I'd think your plan will work fine. Boiling will work, too. I'd do which ever suits you best.
Here's how I've sanitized my Sankes
I ferment in 15.5 gal. Sankes. After I rack out of the keg, I'll rinse all of the solids out. Then fill w/hot water and sodium percarbonate. This removes all of the krausen. I'll rinse again then dump StarSan in and swirl a few times trying to get the StarSan in contact with all surfaces. Dump the StarSan and cover with foil until I'm ready to use it again. This has been my method for approximately 1500 gallon w/o contamination.
