Just got 4 used kegs in today and was wondering how hard it is to get the smell out. I have new o-rings for each one, and none of the kegs smell like root beer, so hopefully this won't be too difficult. Any suggestions?

Clean the kegs well and then let them sit for a day or so in a 50/50 white vinegar and water solution, followed by a rinse and another soak for a week filled with water and half a box of baking soda. And be sure to replace *all* of the rubber parts.

Thanks Bill, I have all the necessary o-rings. I better get busy because I'm gonna need a couple of these in about 2 weeks.

Your're gonna need a few more kegs Randy. Kegs are the greatest. The odor will come out!

a good stout will chase anything away!

Don't count on a stout taking away the soda flavor, especially if the keg had orange soda or root beer. The beer will develop an unpleasant aftertaste over time. Clean the keg well and replace *all* of the rubber parts.
