I have a problem... Just bottled my first batch of beer, and I'm having trouble cleaning my glass carboy so I can start another batch. What's the easiest, most effective way to do this. Any and all suggestions please!
I just do a sodium percarbonate (more expensive and stronger form of oxi clean) soak using hot water and leave it for about 20ish minutes. The bubbles and foaming action usually clean it out pretty well and then I scrub it with a carboy brush too. Works like a charm everytime.
my carboy brush has been kept dry since I discovered the awesomeness of oxy clean. Assuming that you haven't had anything caked on the carboy for a really extended period of time, you should be good with a soak and rinse.
