Beering Up Under Pressure, Cleaning Draft Beer Lines

September 2, 2014 by WhiteStone  

Karl beer linesKarl is a recent graduate from the Dispense Specialist’s Program given by the Micro Matic Institute in Allentown, PA. It is an advanced draft training course so he could learn the skills needed for cleaning the draft beer lines of our dispensing system. Not much worse for a beer fan than flat, “off” beer due to dirty lines, kegs stored at the wrong temperature, or the wrong carbonation! He covered:

  • Keg Package
  • Temperature and Storage
  • Dispense Equipment Components
  • System Balancing
  • Using Mixed Gas (Nitrogen / CO2)
  • Dispense Systems Designs & Applications
    – Direct Draw System
    – Air Cooled System
    – Glycol Cooled System
  • Hands-On Installation Techniques & Practices
  • Troubleshooting
  • Quality Assurance
    – Glassware
    – Line Cleaning

So now with all that knowledge, all systems are good to go from the Terrace bar’s three taps to the twelve in Champney’s!

And PS still some Mug Club spots open – a really great deal and you get to keep the hand thrown barrel tankard at year end.
