    I am wondering if it is really necessary to clean/sanitize taps after the primary fermentation

    I'm resurrecting this ancient thread because I (still) get a lot of private messages about it.

    to bring ...

    the dairy plant I work at (although we call them "flowverters"). They're CIPable that way. We
    got tired o...
