Kegland Bucket Blaster – $62.99 + free shipping, w/coupon

Bucket Blaster - Keg and Carboy Washer

Bucket Blaster – Keg and Carboy Washer via MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Quickly clean kegs and fermenters while you tend to other tasks
  • High flow rate pump provides a powerful blast that coats the inside of the vessel
  • Use it for cleaning or sanitizing with your favorite solutions
  • 15L bucket provides a much larger reservoir compared to other models

Everything included in the system neatly fits inside the bucket for easy storage
The Bucket Blaster is a convenient and effective system for cleaning and sanitizing kegs, carboys, and other brewing vessels. The beauty of the Bucket Blaster is that you can set it and forget it. Simply set up the keg washer basin with your cleaner or sanitizer, set your vessel over the jet nozzle, power up the pump and let the Bucket Blaster do the work while you tend to other tasks. Perfect for homebrew kegs, carboys, FermZillas, or bucket fermenters.

This unit comes with a 15L (3.9 gal) bucket, which doubles as a storage container when you are not using the system. Other keg washers come with a very small reservoir that make it a pain to move, as liquid spills over the sides easily and generally they just do not work as well. The Bucket Blaster’s large 15L reservoir makes it much less likely for you to spill liquid on the floor, and since it can hold more cleaning solution, each cleaning cycle will be that much more effective.

Includes:

  • Submersible Pump – 2,000 L/hr
  • 15L Bucket
  • Powerful Jet Nozzle
  • 9.5 mm EVABarrier Tubing
  • Gray and Black Ball Lock Disconnects
  • Duotight fittings for all connections

Build a Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump

The directions on most line cleaners call for recirculating the cleaner for some period of time.  Most affordable cleaning setups that are out there include a hand pump.  Operating one of those for 15 to 30 minutes, for each faucet, doesn’t sound fun.

To really clean your draft lines, you need to keep solution flowing for a length of time, not just fill and wait.  Initially I tried to clean my system by pushing line cleaner out of a keg.  This was a waste of CO2.  I also found it tough to keep solution running slowly enough to get the required amount of contact time.  It’s easy to quickly push a cleaning or sanitizing solution through your system under CO2 pressure, but I found it to be a pain to try to do so slowly.  This also requires quite a bit of cleaning solution versus a recirculating pump.

I decided to put together a recirculating draft line cleaning pump setup.
