Ok, So I just got the keggle from a friend, and I am cleaning getting ready for the first brew. The sight-glass has hop particles from a previous brew. How do I clean it out? My bottle brush is too big, and I am not sure what to use. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Soak for a while in something better at cleaning than plain water, perhaps PBW, then rinse clean.

I hook my water hose to hot water and run it through the site glass. I do have a tubing brush sized for it.

You could thread a piece of fishing line down and pull a piece of cloth through the glass too.
