Cleaning Your Growler & Keg Cap
All DrinkTanks Growlers bodies and standard caps are dishwasher safe when using detergent that does not contain bleach (aka- sodium hypochorite or calcium hyprochorite). The Keg Cap needs to be washed by hand. For best results rinse growler with warm tap water when you have finished enjoying your beverage.
If your DrinkTanks® Growler needs a better cleaning, follow the steps below.
Cleaning Tools Needed:
- Dish washing sponge or soft bristled bottle brush
- Dish washing soap
- Baking soda
- Hot tap water
Gently scrub the inside of the lid and rinse it well. Take care not to scratch the sealing ring inside the cap when cleaning.
Place a tablespoon of baking soda in the growler, fill with hot water, secure the cap and set aside for one hour. Shake with cap secured, drain and rinse well with hot water.
Gently scrub the inside of the cap and rinse it well. Take care not to scratch the sealing ring inside the cap when cleaning. Run hot water through the open end of the Keg Cap hose while holding the tap open to clean the hose. Hang to dry.
All DrinkTanks® insulated vessels are dishwasher safe when using detergent that does not contain bleach, sodium hypochorite, or calcium hyprochorite.
It can vary depending on the user, but it should last for 3 to 5 growler fills. All it takes is a quick half second of charging the growler. Less is more when it come to using the CO2 injector.
Informal. a pitcher, pail, or other container brought by a customer for beer.
A growler (/ˈɡraʊlər/) is a glass, ceramic, or stainless steel jug used to transport draft beer in the United States and Canada. They are commonly sold at breweries and brewpubs as a means to sell take-out craft beer.
Here is a great article that explains more about growlers and the history behind them. http://www.beeradvocate.com/articles/384/
Our patented Keg Cap™ is an amazing accessory designed to keep your beer fresher/longer after the growler has been opened. It can usually stretch out a growler for 3-5 days after it has been opened, we’ve even had some of our customers write in to tell us it lasted 7 days or more.
You can fill up your DrinkTanks Growler with anything your taste buds desire. They’re beer growlers, but you can also use them for hot drinks such as coffee, cocoa, milk and tea which will not impart flavors or stain the bottle. Acidic fruit juices are also fine as are beer, wine, spirits, sodas, and duh, water.
12 hours hot, 24 hours cold- guaranteed! All DrinkTanks Growlers have a double-wall construction with an insulating vacuum between the chambers. This highly effective thermal technology keeps iced drinks ice cold for up to 24 hours and hot drinks piping hot for up to 12 hours, with no condensation or sweating. And best of all, no metal or plastic flavors!
We recommend you fill and transport your growler with the Standard Cap. Your beer will stay fresh and pressurized with the Standard Cap until the seal is broken (much like a can until it is opened). After you have opened your growler and poured off a beer, make sure to cap it with the Keg Cap to ensure fresh brew for up to a week.
Depending on your state’s laws, you can fill at endless amounts of breweries, fill stations, etc.
The laws vary greatly from state to state and a compiled list of your state’s laws can be found here: http://www.brewersassociation.org/government-affairs/laws/growler-laws/
