If you did decide to have another line with a picnic tap on it, for cleaning I just take it apart, both sides, and soak in oxy clean. Then I rinse by shoving a 1/2" hose in one side and plugging so water runs through. I spray sanitizer in one end and hold up so it runs through. Or just make a line cleaner with a garden sprayer.

I cracked both picnic taps I had on my kegs trying this. Just picked up a new one, is there a way you guys are getting the racking cane in without cracking the plastic? I dont want to break another one trying.

mine just slides right in. Maybe there are slight variations of picnic taps. Mine came from beveragefactory I believe.

I'm going to be assembling my bmbg soon. Looks like I have almost all the parts on hand anyway. Question... Has anyone tried incorporating the mixer insert from the "short hose troubles" thread to increase resistance and decrease flow?

Yes, I use the inserts when bottling.
Also, just jam a plastic bottling wand into your picnic tap. No need to use the rubber stopper, drilling holes, etc. Reduce your keg pressure to get a nice slow fill without excessive foaming, then cap on foam.

I will give it a go. As far as the insert goes, I was thinking of dedicating one to the bottle filler tubing. It slides easily into the tubing and I could place it right above the racking cane. Then i might not need six feet of line. Thoughts?

As long as it restricts the flow. I've never thought about putting the insert in the beer line but the physics are the same, slow down the flow.
Let us know how it works!
