A couple weeks ago I kegged my first batch of beer after bottling for a long time. I have my keg in a kegerator, but I'm not running the beer out through a draft tower or anything like that. It is just being dispensed through the beer line out through a plastic faucet. It is the set-up that came from Northern Brewer.
My question is... do you leave the beer line full of beer all the time? After I'm done pouring into a glass, there is beer filling the line from the keg up to the dispensing plastic faucet thing. I imagine this is normal... but I also wonder if it takes a couple months to get through a keg (hypothetically of course
) then the beer might start to get a little funky? Does everyone pretty much leave the line as it is until a keg is kicked?
