Default Should I purge the lines?

Hi, So I kegged a batch of beer for a party on the 20th of October.

I however could not resist tasting it for at least a pint of each kind I kegged.

Should I wash my lines and untap the kegs or is it okay if I just don't drink until then? I rinsed the spigots and all that already.

Thanks

I wouldn't worry about cleaning the lines if it was me - but you'll be tempted to be pulling another pint or two each day until the party and might not have as much beer as you thought you'd have by then...

Edit: if you have leaky taps then perhaps you should... i've heard sometimes there are issues with picnic taps

Not with the faucets.

If it was me, I'd disconnect the beer lines and clean them, and leave the kegs on gas. It'd be way too tempting otherwise

Cheers!
