Keg day

Thursday is usually the day for cleaning and filling kegs, and today fit the pattern exactly. A couple dozen kegs of various sizes needed washing, and I filled twelve half-barrels and nine five-gallon kegs of root beer, two half-barrels of Tin Lizzie Hefeweizen and one of Bugeater Brown.

The keg washer stopped working about ¾ of the way through the job; kegs would wash and rinse, but then the red "Reject" light came on. I finally realized that the sanitizer reservoir had run empty. Refilling it with fresh sanitizer got the machine working again.

Tomorrow, deliver root beer to Lincoln and Council Bluffs, and try to pick up some empty kegs at a warehouse in Omaha.
