I agree. It was daunting at first, now I can do it in 5 minutes.how many batches have you done in it so far? I felt the disassembly and reassembly was a lot of work at first too but now it just happens as part of the brew day.
I did pick up a CIPball, I don’t remember where I got it. It may have been SS.
I pretty much gave up using it. In order to get any decent spray it requires more flow than a typical brew pump. I have a sump pump style pump for my keg washer which is powerful enough. However after using it a couple times and realizing I needed to take the tri-clovers apart because they would never get hit by any kind of spray. The actual wiping of the inside of the conical is easy and only takes a couple minutes. For me it’s not worth hooking up the CIP system because it only nocks off a couple minutes of what I would need to do.
Another thing to note is that if you have the cooling coil in, it will block a lot of the spray pressure from getting to the conical above and around it.
