Description

Ss Brewtech Keg WaSsher offers the homebrewer a convenient way to clean any classic Cornelius-style kegs (AEB or other similar variants).  To operate, simply remove the keg’s lid, tilt and insert the spray ball attachment into the keg’s lid opening, and then rotate the keg to secure the lip against the WaSsher’s silicone baseplate seal.  Secure the locknut and snug the entire assembly down.  Attach the two ball lock quick disconnect fittings to the gas-in and liquid-out posts ensuring there are no kinks in the silicone tube.  Lastly, turn your keg upside down and put the entire assembly into a standard 5-gallon (25 litre) bucket that contains 8 litres of your preferred cleaning solution, then activate the pump.  Now go grab a beer and relax while the Keg WaSsher does the rest.

No need to disassemble or remove QD posts, dip tubes, or other fittings, all parts are cleaned in place.  No more extra-long scrub brushes or elbow grease.  Since Ss Brewtech designed this washer to fit inside a 25 litre bucket, you can easily clean kegs in batches by setting up a wash station with 3 discrete buckets to perform cleaning, fresh water rinse, and acid sanitizer cycles.  All while leaving the washer attached to a single keg, just jump from one bucket to next until the keg is cleaned, sanitized and ready for use.  Since the Keg WaSsher only requires 8 litres of cleaning solution, the result is less chemical waste and less environmental impact than traditional cleaning methods.

    This is an extravagant purchase. You certainly don’t need one of these, however it does save time and if you suffer backache from washing kegs, this’ll help a lot. It’s also great for cleaning the gas/liquid connectors and pipes, which is something I rarely bother with otherwise. It’s quick and easy to use, and cleans your kegs while you’re off doing other things. It’s not all rosy though.

    It doesn’t come with printed instructions – you need to go to SS Brewtech’s website and watch a video which refers to a different revision of this product. For instance the blue oval-shaped silicone in the supplied product has a large bit sticking up which in the video is added later. This leads to “this can’t be right” moments as you have to bend it out the way to screw the bar bit on.

    For £200 I’d expect the base to have somewhere you can hang your keg lid for cleaning. I’ve found the tip of the nozzle keeps popping off too and due to the rotating (and soapy wet) nature of it, there’s no easy way to screw it back on or tighten it up. Why on earth didn’t they flatten two sides of the round section so it can be gripped with a spanner, or just install it with threadlocker in the first place?

    SS Brewtech generally do high quality products which are worthy of their high cost. This is not one of them. The pump has the appearance of a cheap Chinese unit and gets very hot in use, so I have concerns about its longevity. Likewise the PSU appears to be cheap Chinese rubbish too. I’d feel this would represent low value for money for most people at half the price. I’d only recommend it to those with extremely limited time, or those for whom brewdays are all about managing back pain.

    Additionally, these come from the factory with a US to IEC C5 “cloverleaf” power cable. The Malt Miller sent a UK cable out to me right away – kudos to them – but if you’re going to want to use it right away, it might be worth adding a note to your order asking them to double-check for you. Or just use a laptop power brick cable if you have one…

      Just a note, the keg washer and all other Ss Brewtech products that need plugs get sent with the correct plug for region. These are supplied by The Malt Miller as an free of charge extra, you will also receive the US plug as we do not remove them.
