I've now collected everything I need for my two tap kegerator and am about to put it all together. Should I be sanitizing the lines and taps before install? Maybe this is a silly question as I'm not going to be pouring draught for a few weeks yet. Any advice for a kegging newb would be appreciated! :mug:

Run StarSan solution through the lines before you connect a keg to it. If you have an empty keg, put a couple of quarts of StarSan solution in it and push it through the beer lines (run at least a pint through each line, leave it in there). When you connect a keg to that line/QD, just pour and then discard the initial part that's got the StarSan mixed in. Usually, that's the first few ounces.
