The Mark II Keg & Carboy Washer is a great way to continuously rinse carboys, kegs, and pails with sanitizing solution. It features a submersible pump that runs as long as you keep it plugged in. Fill the base (it holds a gallon) with a dilute cleansing solution such as Brewer’s Edge Cleanser or Five Star Saniclean™, put a carboy, keg, or Siphonless Fermenter on top of the unit, and turn on for 10 to 20 minutes to thoroughly wash the carboy, keg, or pail. You can put airlocks. valves, and more into the front tub on the unit, and they will be cleaned as well.

Includes adapters for cleaning tubing and complete instructions. 15” wide, 15” deep, 16” tall. We recommend the use of Brewer’s Edge Cleanser or Saniclean™ in this unit. Star San will not work due to excessive foaming. For safety, always plug into a GFI protected plug.

Worth the money

Review by Armand on 3/1/2020

I first used it to clean the keg. It reduced the time I had to spend scrubbing but it did not completely replace scrubbing. But kegs have more stuff stuck to them. On a glass carboy where I will clean it right after siphoning, things will be different.

Keg washer

Review by Bill Wells on 12/26/2018

I used this to clean one of my kegs. I let it run for fifteen minutes and the keg was so clean it shined. I have never gotten a keg this clean using any other method. It also worked well on my beer lines and a keg fitting

Works well once you figure out how to use

Review by W. Corvi on 11/22/2018

The product works very well, but the instructions are much less than clear. It will clean and sanitize kegs, carboys, buckets, and tubes, but the manual jumps around as to what to do when. Thus, there is no list of steps for any of the items to be cleaned. The most important thing to remember is to first clean everything, then sanitize everything. I used Brewer's Edge and Saniclean, respectively. There is no easy way to pour the fluid into a holding container for reuse later.

I like it

Review by Greg on 3/26/2018

When I opened up the box, I thought it looked a little cheep at $100, but it works great. I wish I would have gotten one sooner. I haven't tried it on a bucket yet, but it is great on carboys and kegs. Not so great on FastFerm conicals, You have to hold them in place for the whole cleaning process. I wish Mark's or FastFerm would market a collar that would hold the FastFerm securely I use 1 Step cleaner and Starsan in it and both run great without foaming. Just use a little less if you get foam.

Buy 2

Review by Rob on 9/18/2017

I got 2 of these. Thinking about another. 1 for PBW, 1 for rinse water and 1 for sanitizer. Running all 3 at once in the deep sink. Love this thing !

Q: I understand that this is made for Sanitizing, would be a problem if i used PBW?

A: It works fine with PBW.

Q: The krausen leaves solid material on the inside wall of my fermenter. Can this washer handle that?

A: Over 12 hours it might, but hard material is best removed by soaking with Brewer's Edge Cleanser or a PBW type cleaner and hot water. You might also need a carboy brush to assist removal of really stubborn deposits.

Q: Will this work with Sankey Kegs?

A: No, unless you remove the spear pick up tube so there is room for the sprayer to go inside the keg.

Q: Can this be used with the plastic Big Mouth Bubbler fermentor?
