Hi All.

I've been looking at a BM with some interest but I have a question.

As I understand it in normal use the wort is boiled, chilled then drained through the tap.

So how do you sterilise the tap?

Thanks. Aamcle

the tap is considered sterile after the boil since it has been in contact with boiling wort. to be 100% sure you can run boiling wort off through the tap during the boil (and pour it back in the kettle), and you can always spray sanitizer in and around it before you run off the wort.

I just make sure it's been cleaned after the previous brew then rely on the conducted heat from the boil keeping it free of nasties.
