Default Didn't Rinse PBW Well Enough.

I kegged a beer after using PBW and then sanitizing the keg. Hit it with the gas and when I purged the release valve blew out some PWB. I think I may not have rinsed the lid. Thoughts? I don't think it will be a big issue, but wanted to check with you all.

If it was just the lid, I don't think you'll die. Or even get sick. If I recall correctly, I remember reading on another thread that PBW in the concentrations we use is not dangerous. However, I am not an expert and my advice is useless. If you die, I take no responsibility!😳

I followed ill advice from the LHBS on my 1st brew. They gave me a small bag of repackaged PBW. It said on their label it was no rinse. Not knowing any better,I followed it & the beer came out fine. I then followed what was said on here. Yooper's advice,as wellas revvy's,if I remember correctly.

So you no rinsed and didn't get sick or any of that? If so awesome. I'll just be the guinepig before letting others drink it.

I always get a mist of StarSan out of the first pull of the pressure release valve when purging a keg. I can't imagine you haven't anything to worry about here.

I did drain it out well though. So all that was left was what coated the fermenter,etc. Seems to me I only mixed 1oz per gallon then as well. I mix 1.5oz per gallon now,& it def works faster. I started soaking my Cooper's micro brew Fv yesterday,& a couple hours later,everything coating the inside dropped to the bottom.
