Boiling Water?
You can pour in some boiling water, close lid, and shake.

I sanitize my sanke keg by putting a little water in the bottom and sitting it on the burner and steam sanitize. Probably not a good idea with a corny keg.

nice- same response at the exact same moment! i was thinking boil a kettle of water and pour all down the sides (insides). i would take off the poppets, pour down the diptubes, and pour hot water over the poppets and posts before reconnecting them. i assume the o-rings are fine with 95C water...?
