Tips for Cleaning your ManCan

  1. Thoroughly rinse out your ManCan and then fill it with warm water.
  2. Add 1 cleaning tablet and let it dissolve.*
  3. Soak for 10 minutes.
  4. If you have a tap system, re-attach the tap and Perfect Pour Regulator. Use the CO2 pressure to run some of the solution through the tap. Release the pressure using the Pressure Release Ring before removing the Regulator and Tap.
  5. Finally, empty the ManCan of the cleaning solution and rinse thoroughly.
  6. Again, if you have a tap system, re-attach the tap and Perfect Pour Regulator, re-pressurize the ManCan and run some clean water through.
  7. Air-dry your ManCan thoroughly before refilling.
  8. Repeat if necessary. Sanitize, if required.

*Soapy water will clean your ManCan, but it can leave soap residue creating off flavors in your beer. To achieve the best and cleanest results, we recommend using the ManCan Cleaning Tabs.
