New Year’s Clean

Here is a tip to ring in the New Year. Rinse your equipment right after use, and never put anything away before a good hot rinse. Including your bottles soon after emptying them out. This is the only way to go, as even a small amount of beer will quickly turn to mold and make a mess of things.

Soon you are replacing pieces of equipment or boiling everything because it’s all cruddy. With hoses, run hot tap water through it all and afterwards swing it around like a lasso to encourage all the remaining water to exit.

Singing Roger Miller songs or line dancing can be a most enjoyable accompaniment, although not entirely necessary.
