Make Better Beer!

Hand crafting beer is a fun and rewarding hobby. The first rule of making better beer is to keep everything that touches the beer clean and sanitized. The Mark II Keg Washer helps to accomplish this task in an easy, efficient, and effective manner.

Save Time, Labor, Space and have fun!

The most labor-intensive and time-consuming task in brewing is cleanup. The Mark II Keg Washer allows you have all your containers and hoses clean by the time your brewing task is done.

Many home brewers set aside containers ?to be cleaned later.? This discourages getting started on the next batch.

The Mark II Keg Washer should be the first piece of equipment you set up and the last thing you put away on brew day or when you transfer your beer from one container to then next.

When transferring beer from one container to the next, we first use the Mark II Keg Washer to sanitize the container that the beer will be transferred to. Then we clean the container that the beer was transferred from.

 

This is awesome!  I have this and like it very much.  It’s one of my favorite pieces of brewing gear.  It’s saved me a lot of time and hassle.  Check out my Hands on Review – beyond the in depth review that includes some mods and hacks.
