Do I just write on the side with a sharpie?
I thought about a paper tag hanging off the handle, but that wouldn't survive getting wet.
Or...I could assign each one a number and track in a paper notebook.
What does everyone else do?
I fix/replace things when needed. When the gaskets get too loose, or something doesn't look like it should, I replace them.
I break down and clean kegs and eyeball everything between beers going in them, and I use keg lube on the gaskets and o-rings routinely to keep them supple. Otherwise, I don't do anything to them.
