With your other hand, press the start/stop button (bottoms up logo) 8. Beer will start pouring from the valve and might be foamy at first 9. Keep the beer pouring until the beer runs clear 10. Once clear, press the start/stop button to stop the flow of beer 11. Put the nozzle post in the up position and press the prime button to take it out of prime mode 12.

When this happens, do the following: 1. Go to the keg room and find the empty keg. 2. Verify that the EKD attached to that beer line is empty or that the float has dropped to the bottom of the EKD 3. Change the keg 4. Turn the EKD bleed off valve to the open position, filling the empty EKD with beer. 5. Once the beer float has reached the top of the EKD, close the bleed off valve. 6.

How to Clean A Long Draw Bottoms Up Draft Beer System
Clean beer lines are integral to maintaining the quality of beer and the Bottoms Up Draft Beer System. If you aren't cleaning your beer lines on a regular basis (at least once a month) you can fall victim to issues such as yeast, mold, beer stones and bacteria in the beer you serve to your customers. On top of that, it can lead to malfunctions in the system itself. Luckily, cleaning a long draw (remote) glycol-cooled Bottoms Up Draft Beer System is a rather straight forward process. We even recommend doing away with a cleaning canister and just using a couple of 5 gallon buckets. Not that you can't use a canister, just why spend the money? Don't worry though, we go through both methods in this video. You'll need the following to get the job done: - Two 5 gallon buckets or one cleaning canister and one 5 gallon bucket. - Some dish soap - A scrub brush - A bottle brush or small toothbrush - Beer Line Cleaning Solution - Access to warm water Should you have any questions or need technical assistance please call us at (888) 618-0486.
