I just started kegging, filled my first keg about 10 days ago. I attached a beverage line tonight (just a standard picnic/cobra tap) to see how things were progressing. Carbonation is coming along just fine but not quite done yet.
I have been searching and have read pretty much every post on the site related to this topic. Based on my reading I think I understand how people generally clean/sanitize, especially when doing it between kegs. What I can't quite figure out is how often to do it. I will be stuck with picnic taps for a while so I want to establish a consistent routine. Kegs, lines and taps will be kept in my fridge at 37-40F.
I anticipate it will take me 8-10 weeks to kick a keg, I plan to have 3 on tap at a time. Given that, should I clean my beverage line setups more often than just between kegs? Would once a month be a better practice or is that just overkill? I know there is no "right answer" here, just looking for opinions from those with a similar setup that have been doing it for a while...
Also open to any other advice you might have on the cleaning/sanitizing process specific to picnic tap setups (aside from not using them of course...)?
