As I said, cleaning will NOT mask it - I used a rootbeer line to serve a huge imperial stout - it still tasted of rootbeer. This was after 10 days of soaking in Oxyclean and PBW, then 2 days in Starsan. I scrubbed the hell out of it with a line brush, too. Finally I just did the right thing and spent a couple of bucks and quarantined the lines and seals.
Do NOT use a rootbeer hose or seals for ANYTHING but rootbeer.
If you don't believe me, I really don't care. Go ahead and use it for other beverages. I am just trying to save you from posted a thread titled "my blonde ale tastes like rootbeer"
