The sample was straight from the fermenter, prior to kegging (to another keg). I did leave the thermometer in there for awhile while it got back up to 60F.
The keg I pour beer out of is fine, it was the first time in my new boil keg that I'm worried about- which is just a budweiser keg.
As far as the cleaning, I don't know. I just cleaned with soap and water and filled it and brought some water to a near boil. It seemed clean...
Per your comments, How do you recommend properly cleaning the boiling keg? And this is kind of an aside, but how do you recommend properly siphon into the pouring keg?
