I question the wisdom of using even a weak bleach solution to sanitize
stainless steel kegs, as suggested by alan Richter. Chlorine will corode
stainless if left in contact long enough. If you're meticulous about
rinsing, it should be no problem, but another (noncorrosive)solution is
Iodophor, a commercial, iodine-basaed sanitizer taht works on contact.
I should be available at your local homebrew shop or restaurant supplier.
