adding to an almost empty keg?
Here's a simple question but figured I'd ask.
I had kegged and subsequently drank a batch of apple cider over the course of 2 or so months. I made another batch in the meantime and that's about ready to keg.
I still have about 5 glasses left (estimate) from the first batch. Second batch is the exact same recipe. Is it OK to just add to the keg without re-cleaning/sanitizing or not?
I figure it's already sanitized from before....but I'm not sure if only having liquid on the bottom 5-6" for a few weeks means there might be some crud built up on the sides that might cause some off flavors?
Future: IPA, MO/Citra SMaSH
Bottled/kegged: Sweet cream Stout (variations: vanilla and vanilla/coffee), "Apfelweizen", Imperial IPA, English Brown Ale, Honey Hefe.
