Attached is a link to an inexpensive (around $15) carboy/keg pressure washer build I came up with. I looked on here and didn't see anything like it so I thought I would share.

Cool. Thanks for sharing. That's much better than putting the carboy up to a jet washer (or whatever it's called) or doing what I do ... picking the carboy up and shaking like crazy.

At Home Depot:

Orbit 3/4 in. Slip x FHT PVC Fitting
Model # 53360

Watts 3/8 in. x 1/2 in. Plastic Barb x MIP Adapter
Model # A-300

DURA 3/4 in. x 1/2 in. Schedule 40 PVC Reducer Bushing
Model # C438-101

LEGEND VALVE 3/4 in. PVC Solvent Socket Ball Valve
Model # S-601

I added the ball socket valve to restrict the water flow instead of running over the faucet faucet every time I needed to pause.

Brilliant! You should write this up as an HBT article!

Nice idea. I normally just fill with cleaner and let sit until i'm ready to use it again and then rinse and add starsan.
but for those times when I need to get it done faster this would be pretty good to have around. plus I think this would help with the keg cleaning... heck this would help with the Keggle cleaning too!
Thanks for posting.
