Hi,

I just got 3 used pin lock kegs, I want to clean them. I read about sanitizing and many people seems to use Star-san.

Is there any known problems about using this stuff if it's in contact with O-ring ? Can it be a problem for stainless steel ?

Thanks.

No problems at all. But to clean them you want to use something like PBW, then sanitize with Starsan, two different processes. both are ok to use on stainless and o-rings.

Ok thank you.

I'll replace the o-rings for sure and try to find the cleaner and sanitizer in a local store.

Thanks.

Callback79, I'm also located in Quebec City and was wondering where you found Star San as my local brew shop is not carrying this product. Thanks

I bought it online, did you take a look at la Fabrique du vin ?

No, unfortunately they were closed during Holidays (and I can't wait to brew....)! But I will surely get there when time permits!
