I am sure you are right. Unfortunately a simple spray with sanitizer won't be able to clean them well enough to stop the stick. This doesn't mean it is a terrible product, just something I had to get used to.

I think fresh beer in the faucet can not survive jet rinse with sodium percarbonate, but maybe I am wrong. Hope I will try soon.

I am planning on covering the kegerator with some nice wood and make some stainless stuff but I will definitely buy that picnic tap, I can imagine it being very handy as a backup or a portable tap.

+1 for the picnic tap. I use mine when I am camping for my camping box.

I could run this little experiment and let you know if you like. Since it is the morning here in Aus I won't be able to spray it until tonight. I will let you know how it goes tomorrow night.

You are precious, thank you . I will use a pump up sprayer with DIY nozzle, something with a thin hose so I can put it directly into my tap.

Maintain daily flow through your taps and you will be fine. . You can upgrade later.

Precious? Gee not even my wife calls me that. Seems to work well. I just used my starsan mix with the mist spray amd gave it a good dosage. There was a little bit of sticking but nothing compared to what it generally is.

Glad to hear it as I placed an order yesterday. I dunno if it is absolutely normal in english but I frequently use exaggerated expressions in my language to say I really mean something, no matter if it sounds gay or not . My girlfriend says it is weird even in slovak. She also says I am weird. I should have written "you are very kind" but now you can bet you are!
