Why a beer line cleaning kit?
Using alkaline, or caustic, beer line cleaners kills bacteria and other living organisms. These bacterium and yeasts can grow enough in two weeks to be noticeable. By waiting months there could be enough bacteria and other living organisms to seriously affect the taste of your beer, wine, cider, or other product. In the commercial world draft systems are also cleaned with acid every 90 days to remove beer stone. If you have a system with permanent beer line you may want to consider this. Otherwise, just change your poly vinyl product lines every once in a while.
2 weeks may seem like a lot for home use. At the very least clean your beer lines every time you change products or kegs. Cleaning your kegerator includes cleaning your beer faucets and couplers. Here is a video for cleaning a beer faucet. Here is a video for cleaning a beer keg coupler.
