Mark II Keg and Carboy Washer


Product Number: 40808

Availability: In stock

The most time consuming and most important step in making beer or wine at home is cleaning and sanitizing. The Mark II Keg Washer reduces the time it takes to clean and sanitize your kegs, carboys, and buckets (also comes with hose cleaning adapters). Simply fill the reservoir with cleaner or sanitizer, place the vessel over the sprayer, and plug it in. This great automated device frees you to complete other tasks while it works!

Save on cleaning and sanitizing chemicals, by spraying the solution on the entire inner surface you use less, saving water and chemicals. The reservoir also contains space to soak small items like airlocks and stoppers. The Mark II Keg Washer should be the first piece of equipment you set up and the last you put away.

Good Deal Review by Tim E

I've used it twice to clean and sanitize a big mouth plastic carboy. It does what it says it will do. I had some issues with the rubber ring remaining in the mouth of the carboy, but nothing that I could pull out with ease. If you're expecting this product to clear the trub and kreussen, think again. You'll need to ensure the carboy is clear of this before using it. All in all, it is a good product worth the price of admission.

Changed my life Review by Duct tape Murphy

This device has made cleaning almost fun. Would like to get another, so I could have 1 cleaner, 1 sanitizer. Comes with a couple of different options out of the pump: 1/2" pipe thread main sprayer, hose barbs for hoses, etc. The 1/2" pipe thread fits my quick disconnects, so once I thread on a fitting I can pump cleaner/ sanitizer through all my hoses and equipment. Bought a timer from amazon and now it's set it and forget it. Fittings are all soft pvc so hand tightening is all you need to change connections.
I have had 2 brews since purchase, and the primary fermenter on one brew did require scrubbing. In general primary fermenters are not the ones that you want to recirculate the same cleaner for too long anyways.
You can use this to clean any piece of equipment that beer runs through, like a plate chiller, saving gobs of time.
Nothing in this kit is super expensive if you want to spend the time rigging something together, but having it all in one box is well worth the modest $100.

This is an awesome washer. I was a little skeptical about it washing the hard crusty residue on the top of the carboy... But it did! Very Happy I Bought It!!

Make cleaning easier Review by Mark

(Posted on 2/9/14)

Product Rating:

I do like what it does, but still a bit of work to clean. I really like putting items into the system and going about other work. It doesn't clean the heavy stuff completely but does loosen it up enough to make the brush work more easily. I have carboy handles which makes additional props for these necessary (and more risky). If you have the storage space and money it's a fun tool.

Great time saver Review by Will

This product has been a great time saver, it was able to clean a carboy that I could scrub clean with brushes. I wish it had some ball lock adapters and an easier method to clean hoses.

Great for 2nd run washes Review by Culen

(Posted on 1/22/14)

Product Rating:

While this is a great tool for a final clean it has many falts.
Pros: You can clean a keg an carboy more theorugh without dissassembling it. Carboys is a plus becasue I really hate emptying that water out while not trying to break it.
Cons: You still have to use a brush!
Its a pain to empty out/clean old water in between washing. I am going to attempt to put a drain on it with a valve.
Also I wish it was one peice of plastic or even better stainless steel, there are so many parts you can loose.
Also its really pricy... I would reprice it at $65

Does OK Review by lje

Does an adequate job of cleaning kegs, it is especially nice to hook the pump to the posts and clean those without having to completely disassemble your keg. As is also mentioned in the instructions, it is recommended that you use a wash rag to clean the dip tube as the machine has a hard time hitting that with solution.

If you're purchasing the Mark II Cleaner primarily to save time and sweat on cleaning carboys, you should reconsider. The krausen ring in your primary fermentor carboy will not be removed by this machine in any reasonable amount of time. You still have to get the carboy brush out and scrub that off yourself. So you are really not saving yourself any time or effort whatsoever. If you scrub then run the carboy through the machine, the advantage is that you will have a cleaner carboy than if you would have scrubbed alone.

While it does add more time to my cleaning process, I still use this device frequently because things are ultimately cleaner than without. A 5-star rating would have been deserved if it did a better job at cleaning stuck-on organics.

Saves Time Review by Brian

Product Rating:

The washer saves time and cleaner on a boring task. I am able to clean a keg, carboy or bucket and let it run for 10-15 minutes and get very clean results. You are able to reuse the cleaning solution on multiple items during a cleaning. Previously I would fill them with 5 gallons of PBW water and let soak overnight.

Does a credible job cleaning Review by JD

It cleans better bottles and kegs sufficiently well that I don't have to. Just fill the basin and let it do it's thing.

Helps me out with a boring chore Review by Hank

Product Rating:

Anything that does boring chores for me is a worthwhile purchase if reasonably priced. It does the job well, and the price is ok.
