Ok, so I kicked a keg and it won't be used for a few weeks. What is the proper way to store that line/tap? It was only in use for about 5 days so no chance for buildup of anything. I flushed the line and tap with just water to push the beer out and rinse it all. Should I put PBW or StarSan in the line for storage? I didn't disassemble the tap.. just flushed.

I use picnic taps, but I will dissemble after every keg and oxyclean the pieces. Then rinse. I run some starsan through them before next use. I just coil them up and store them in the beer fridge so they don't get lost
If I wasn't going to use a tap for a while, I'd run PBW or BLC through it, and rinse with Starsan, letting the starsan run out. Don't let the starsan sit in the lines. Starsan makes tubing all weird and gooey.
