    Getting that Soda Smell out of my Corny Keg

    I recently acquired a corny Keg (still with soda pop in it). After dumping the soda out, I tried multiple things to remove the soda pop smell.

    Does anyone have a full proof way to remove that god awful soda pop smell. Because nothing has worked for me so far.

    Thanks
    Currently finishing a keg of an Imperial Pumpkin Ale that I brewed for Christmas. The best Pumpkin ale I've ever had.

    Do not use bleach, it will corrode your kegs. But as Mike suggests, replace all rubber parts and then an overnight soak in PBW should take care of it.
