...and for me it is "say" - I've never done it, but having read about it, I don't see a problem. Cleaning a keg through a small hole shouldn't be an issue, I can manage it with a cask so I'm sure a keg can't be that much different :)

Nice prices for new industry standard kit.

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

It's defnitely doable, but you can also get round it by using a pump and a keg connector to clean. Remove the non-return gubbins from the connector, turn keg upside down, pump PBW through the liquid out and out the gas in and cycle. Then repeat with water to rinse and then with starsan. Easy.

If you don't have a pump, it's not hard to take the spear out (easier with a Grundy than with a Sanke, but only because there's no retaining clip to lose).



I didn't manage to see these cornies on Friday, and will try when I can walk again (I had knee surgery on Friday).

My only concern would be filling and re-pressurising. I'm guessing repressurising can be done from a gas cylinder, through the connector and spear?

You need to adapt a connector to fill the keg. This isn't hard, and I can explain more when I'm not being screamed at by two kids.


Liquid goes through the spear, gas behind it (IYSWIM).
