Default carboy cleaner / keg cleaner / beer line cleaner!

So I found another use for my Carboy/Keg cleaner and tried it out last night and it worked great! The only issue I had was a small drip from the swivel on the beer line to the adapter due to the fact that it does not have any kind of rubber seal when I am just hooking them up.

I guess I should have put something about that......

I put hot PBW in the bucket and hooked it up to the pump and out the pump into the beer lines to clean them and pump back to the bucket. So yeah I was cleaning the lines. I rinsed and sanitized the same way.

So you're the reason silicon tubing is so expensive. Just kidding. Nice repurposing! Makes me think...

I actually bought some tubing and they sent me the wrong length (too small) so they re-sent me the correct length I ordered.....so I have a good amount of extra tubing now But I would not have bought it just for this purpose but it does go onto the perlick quite well.
