Essential Line Cleaning Advice & FAQ:

  • How often should I clean my draught beer lines? At least every 7 days - If your beer is stored in ambient room temperatures then 7 days may be too long.

  • How long should I leave beer line cleaning fluid in my pipes? Depending on the condition of your beer lines, always a minimum of 10 minutes (per flushing cycle - 3x cycles) and no more than 15 minutes (per flushing cycle). The maximum time frame is 45 minutes to avoid pipe damage.

  • How much cleaning fluid should I use? Most detergents advice to use 100ml for every 10 litres of water. 

Things To Remember:

  • When you have finished your line clean, ensure to pour through at least 4 - 6 pints of water through the tap to ensure all detergent residual has been flushed through. Left over cleaning detergent in pipes can be extremely hazardous, this could lead to serious impact on health.

  • If you use glycol chillers, remember to switch to cleaning mode the night before you clean your lines, to avoid freezing.

The effort pubs make for beer line cleaning perfection.

Despite the fact that yeast will always form in beer lines, there are ways to ensure it doesn’t collect too fast or damage the beer’s quality. It isn’t difficult to notice that dirty beer lines cause many problems for your customers and your reputation. Dirty beer lines lead to awful-tasting beer with an off scent, frothy pours, and slowed service. You will also have to clean the draft taps more often, which will require time and money for cleaning materials and labour. Although cleaning beer lines isn’t enjoyable, it is crucial.

What is the best way to clean draught beer lines?

It is necessary to clean your beer lines using a mixture of water and food-safe bleach. The dispense line should be drained to remove the old beer, and the tap should remain open until water flows through the beer tap. Every 10 litres of water should be mixed with 100ml of beer line cleaner in a cleaning bottle.

Why are beer lines so difficult to keep clean?

Because yeast forms in beer lines due to the appealing environment of which it forms, they are difficult to keep clean. The yeast in beer lines is hydrophobic, repelling water. This means that the yeast sticks to the wall of the beer line and adheres to water. Because it is hydrophilic, the yeast becomes immersed and stays in the beer line. To clean your beer lines, you must break down the yeast using chemicals, then flush it out using a water-based solution. You can make the job of cleaning your beer lines easier by washing them frequently. You should clean your draft beer lines at least once a week to prevent yeast buildup. This will make it easier to remove the yeast from the walls of the lines and the fob detectors.

How frequently should you clean your beer lines?

A regular and consistent cleaning schedule for beer lines, as mentioned earlier, is critical to preserving beer brand standards. Beers with a higher alcohol content tend to have more yeast. If you don't have a cellar cooling system, you may have to clean your lines more frequently with stronger beers, especially if you don't have a cellar cooling system. Certain beers are naturally more carbonated, so they may be more difficult to clean. So, at least 7 days is the industry standard, but more frequently if your beer is stored outside a chilled environment.

Which cleaners should you use?

Prosan purple beer line cleaner is the best choice, as the purple colour allows your staff to quickly and easily determine whether there is cleaning fluid in the line. The purple line cleaner used by line-cleaning professionals is also preferred by industry giants such as JD Whetherspoons, Diageo & St Austell's. In the industry, our manufacturer is regarded as the industry leader because "Our line cleaner is brewery approved by all the major breweries and recommended by many of the regionalised ones. The varying formula to meet licence requirements, cleaning frequency, water hardness, and colour preference are all taken into account" (line cleaner). Visit to discover more about our line cleaner.

It's time to wrap things up:

Yeast bacteria can develop in beer lines and become quite harmful to your establishment's hygiene and beer quality. Beer lines that are not maintained well may lead to potential illnesses and poor-quality beer. Cleaning beer lines is a challenging job that must be done properly in order to avoid contamination. The best approach to clean lines is to use a cleaning solution such as our purple beer line cleaner, which will break down the yeast inside the line and then flush it out with clean water.
