How often should I clean my beer lines?
Just by its very nature the fact that someone types this into Google probably suggests that they do not enjoy the task of beer line cleaning and are trying to find out the maximum amount of time in which they can allow before having to clean the lines. In a quest to save time and money, many bars carry out a juggling act between trying to ensure the beer tastes as it should do without having to clean the lines too often. This method is however somewhat of a gamble as its failure is measured by customer complaints and a lost customer often never returns and more importantly tells their friends and the internet, so before you know it, you have a network of people believing your venue serves poor tasting beer.
There are various claims as to how long you should leave your lines, from one to six weeks seems to be where the discourse lies. If you are uncertain and confused by the mixed messages then you should consider employing the services of a professional organisation such as Clear Brew.
