Hey there guys
I am new to this forum and hope you can help out.
I run a bar that has a very high turn over of lager and cream flow and I had one real ale pump installed in March.
Since then I have tried quite a few ales but have stuck to Old Hooky the past three months because it was very reliable / tasted great and I could tap and vent and it would drop real fast and sometimes I could serve within a day of taping but the past month every cask I have had in has been cloudy as hell. I returned 6 one week for a credit then two weeks later I had another 5 delivered but they turned out cloudy but tasted okay, this week I had another 3 and the same issue, it looks terrible but tastes great.
I clean the lines every week and lately I have been cleaning them twice a week, I use Molson Coors standard line cleaner with warm water and rinse plenty, leave the pump engaged to clean the mechanism etc but it still keeps coming out cloudy. I have checked the lines for yeast build up but they are clear and I have a high turnover and can do Three casks a night so its not going sour in the line.
I have ordered some Rev James, Doombar, and Green King IPA for next week to see if those are any better.
Can anyone think of anything I might be doing wrong or ideas on how to fix this issue?
Thanks in Adcance!
