So, I brewed my first batch of beer in almost a year and a half the other weekend. My keezer has been sitting in the breakfast nook since we moved, partially pressurized, plugged in for part of the time. I'm calling the contents thereof a wash. Not terribly concerned about that.
However, I'm curious about recommended cleaners and processes to all but resurface the inside of the chest freezer, all surfaces of the kegs, lines, and faucets etc.
Call it a 'long overdue fall cleaning'.
I'm already considering starting with solid scrubbing with barkeepers friend, following with sodium metabisulfite on all surfaces, a full rinse, and then my usual pre-fill starsan treatment.
Anyone been through a similar process or have any suggestions?
I almost want to take the opportunity to tear down the whole keezer (I attached my collar to the base, not the lid; it's not exactly 'flat'; etc.) I now have a proper woodworking shop with which I could 'get it right'....
I guess I COULD just bottle this batch while I figure all this out.
