Guides.

Tap Cleaning
  • We recommend weekly tap cleaning as a minimum (daily is fantastic), they sit in the ambient temperature which perfect conditions for bacteria to thrive.
  • Add approximately 20mL of multi-enzymatic Beer Line Cleaner (BLC) per 1 Litre of hot water into food grade bucket.
  • Soak the taps in Maxi-Enzyme for minimum 30 minutes, longer is ok as it is water based and non-corrosive.
  • Alternate each week with the taps in the ‘open’ and ‘closed’ position, so the multi-enzymes clean all areas of the tap.
  • Recommend using a small brush to give a light clean on the inside of the tap.
  • Flush thoroughly with potable (tap) water.
  • Recommend using protective gloves when placing your hand in the bucket, so the enzymes don’t affect your skin and the water is hot.
  • Recommend wearing safety glasses to avoid any product splashing in your eyes. If this does occur, flush your eyes out thoroughly with potable water.
