Default Thinking of starting soda...tap question.

I was thinking of putting a soda on tap in my kegerator, but I don't want to have to make it a perm soda line (I only have three taps). I read (through another post here) that root beer will permantly destroy my keg, line, and tap, or at least make it unsuitable for anything else with out a complete overhaul. Is there ANY soda that I could do, that I would be able to, with a simple cleaning, put back to use as a beer line. Or am I just better off dispense carbed water, and flavoring with syrup in the glass. Or should I just get soda in the cans.

From what I've read, though I haven't tried it yet, you would be better off just carbing the water and mixing in the glass. At least that way, everyone can have the flavor soda they want, and you won't be losing anything due to the flavor of the soda in the keg/line.

Yeah...I don't think I'd risk the Perlicks. I'm thinking a cheap picnic tap, and a lenght of line.

Most have found that is to much pressure for those, I'd be concerned.

Just pick up a standard faucet and swap out the perlick The Bev-seal ultra 235 is great flush the line with BLC rinse then a little Star-san no off taste or smell

I have a keg of just carbonated water, and I add Torani syrup to the glass for flavors. The kids really enjoy it and I am not committing a keg to just one soda flavor. If I am going to commit a keg to a single flavor, that flavor will be beer.......

Cheers!!
