I've been making mead and cider for a few years now, but this is my first real attempt at brewing beer. I have made two extract batches, an AHS Evil Brown Ale and AHS Belgian Half Wit. Now, I am ready to rack the brown ale into my converted pin-lock keg.
1. The kegs I have were sitting in a garage for 30 years before being rescued by me. Three kegs still have quite a bit of soda in them (Sprite and Collins mix). One had sparkling water, and the last two were empty (dried Coke). Should I have any worries about using the kegs? I have replaced all seals and cleaned them with PBW. Do I need to scrub the inside with anything? Would a SS scrub pad do any damage? I am a little worried about the age of the kegs and didn't know if the soda would do any damage sitting in them for so long.
2. Is there anything else I should do or be worried about with my kegs?
I appreciate any and all input.
