I am sure they dont mix it with the beer, rather it is run through the pipes and left for a short period before being flushed with lots and lots of water.

Really? You mean that people aren't actually left drinking beer line cleaner?

Well I'll be damned!

Oi! Sarccy b*****d. I have actually drunk beer on Alderney and can confirm that it does contain hypochlorite.

I know this, 'coz it tasted bloody awful.

No probably better in your Shilling or Bellhaven... it certainly would make those two brews taste a lot better

Correct it is pumped up into the pipes and then left in them for an hour or so before being flushed out with fresh water.

Same stuff I used to use to clean out / flush blood analysers - so pretty useful stuff if you also don't want to catch Hepatitis etc from your boat's hull

And the same stuff I use to 'shock' dose our swimming pools, very effective form of chlorine to use as a disinfectant. I've also used it to bleach patios etc in a well diluted mix. Had it on my skin quite often without such dramatic results as Wilk so either my mix is weaker (but it says 13% as per previous post) or he's lost his man up pills, again.
Wouldn't dream of using it neat on the Rib.

Any long term buddy of Mollers doesn't need to carry out an "acid test" to prove that they have thick skin

"Buddy"?!!! The bloke's a twat!

The hypochlorite 'skin peels' aren't doing much to slow the aging process Kerns. Perhaps you should try something a lot stronger.
