Cleaning CO2 Lines in a Kegarator?
I've been kegging beer for about 8 months now, and my kegerator has gone through a number of modifications. For the moment, now i have capacity for about 4 kegs with a single regulator and a 4-way CO2 distributor.
By a repetitively doing a newbie mistake that i think just about everyone must make, i heat up a newly filled keg to 30-40 PSI to force carb, shake like hell and then accidently open the valve to one of the other kegs. Basically what i get is a beer explosion in the C02 line between keg a (30psi) and keg b(8-10 psi). Now there's crusty beer in my CO2 lines. As far as i can tell, this issue hasn't been changing the taste of my beer but i would like to fix it.
Is it easier to cut out all of the vinyl tubing and redo the CO2 lines to ensure a well sanitized kegerator, or is there a simple method of cleaning this out?
How and when should i clean the 4-way CO2 distributor?
