The line cleaning business is in high demand. Beer line cleaning is a necessary component to serving quality beers but it can be very dangerous if not done correctly. The quality and flavor can be ruined when it travels from the keg to the faucet. Yeast, beer stones, mold and bacteria are beer line enemies. Beer line cleaning chemicals are not safe for consumption; these chemicals  dissolve proteins like the skin, eyes, and throat. It is recommended and important to clean a draft beer system at a minimum of once every two weeks. The long draw systems that exceed 25ft and serve high volumes of beer should be cleaned once a week.

TIP: Professional training and good insurance is important. Be very careful and make sure whoever is cleaning the lines is a properly trained or that customer will take one swallow and off to the emergency room with a call to his lawyer.
