The KegMan 5099 Home & 5299 Professional Five Liter draft system Line Cleaning Starter Kit can clean all draft beer lines up to 100 feet in length. It can also be used with cleaning boards, sockets and caps to do gang cleaning. This kit is suitable for all draft beer dispensing systems with an American Sankey keg coupler. Other KegMan Cleaning Bottles & Accessories are available for use with Bass, Guinness, Spaten, Heineken, Yuengling and everything in between. No matter what cap you require KegMan has it and many other size cleaning bottles as well. All systems follow the same general method.
This kit is the only kit that will work on all danby and other small ¼ keg systems with non-standard Chinese faucets and shanks. If your system is also foaming consider the Foam Fixer Replacement kit which also allows you to use the less expensive direct draw 5320 cleaning kit which will work with all standard American Draft Beer Parts.

Rinse the lines of Cleaning solution Release the pressure in the cleaning bottle using the caps pressure release and detatch the keg coupler from the cleaning bottle.Remove the keg coupler from the cleaning bottle. Remove the bottle cap from the cleaning bottle. Add sufficient warm (body temperature) water for the length of the lines being cleaned to cleaning bottle. Be sure the draw tube is pushed securely on the inside of the bottle cap. Screw bottle cap, with the plastic draw tube, onto cleaning bottle and shake to mix the cleaning solution. Remove the keg coupler from the keg. Attach the keg coupler to the cleaning bottle cap and twist to lock in place. Open the coupler by rotating the wings or depressing the lever. Place a catch basin or bowl under the faucet. Open the faucet and let the line(s) thoroughly flush with the water. Use at least three voluumes of water to flush completely. Close the faucet but be sure you have left the water in the lines so as not to leave them empty when the beer flows again.
Finishing the Job Release the pressure in the cleaning bottle using the caps pressure release and detatch the keg coupler from the cleaning bottle. Dunk the keg coupler in clean water and wipe off with a clean damp cloth. Lubricate the bottom seals on the keg coupler with brewery approved probe and tap lube (p/n 9007). It will greatly extend the life of the seals. Reconnect the keg coupler to the beer keg and activate it. Open the faucet to flush the water out of the lines with the beer. Use your judgement and the color to tell when the beer has replaced the water.
Serve fresh beer from your clean line(s) as desired.
