Default Kegging Sour beers

Just started kegging my Sour & Brett beers a while back and was wondering if anyone has any issue with infection due to a shared CO2 tank? I have separate equipment all the way up to my manifold & use a check valve. Haven't had any issues but I noticed some crap in my sour side gas line and wondered just how far the bugs would travel?

I too use all different liquid side components (actually have one tap that's always a sour/brett beer), but use a manifold that feeds gas to both sour and regular beers. I've had no noticeable problems with almost 2 years of use.


I brew lots of beer.
