A word of warning, especially since you have just done one batch.
Don't leave bleach solution standing in stainless for a long time
(long term storage, or even overnight). It is a strong enough
oxidizer that even stainless steel will rust.
I left some stuff soaking in my kitchen sink overnight, and found a
couple of rust spots on edges (like around the drain, or where there
was a scratch in the sink). They scrubbed off easily, but you wouldn't
necessarily see them inside the keg, and it would be more severe
if you left it for a few weeks while waiting for your next batch
to be ready.
