I clean as I go along and as soon as the yeast is pitched I clean up the rest of the equipment.

I wouldn't worry much...scrub it down, then PBW or oxiclean, possibly starsan and then go...you are boiling in it for like an hour after all, most everything will be killed. Just the same, I would pull apart the fittings, ball valves, and such and make sure they were good and clean.

The only mold I would be concerned with is in a fermentor, a bottling bucket, or related tubing.

2) cleaning methods?


Basically, just like any noobie I need to some advice and the brew fairy to come down put a nice beer under my pillow and note that says everything is gonna be alright.



Seriously I plan to oxiclean then bleach then oxiclean the he!! out that thang. Just curiuos what other routes I could go as I hate to loose a pot.
Chit happens Bro. Clean it like the others suggested and you will be good to go but nix the bleach.

i just did the same thing that is why i was on here to see what to do about it. you beat me to the post. i was just trying to get to bed on brew day it was after 1 am when i finely pitched the yeast. my question is my ic was sitting in the pot as well. ( i store it in the pot to save space) and thats is why i thought is was clean. is it the same process with the copper ic?? or should i clean that diffrently??

hah, I leave my BK for days sometimes after a boil....(I always seem to be boiling on a weekend when we have plans that night, and SWMBO is rushing my butt out the door with barely enough time for me to get the wort chilled and yeast pitched....

Who cares? They are pots...you boil in them. I personally just discovered how awesome a pressure washer can be for nearly everything....I just blast everything out and don't worry.

I just pictured 1600psi water being sprayed up my nose while cleaning. I also just thought, cotton candy wand the fluff and boil.....

Going to oxiclean the heck out of them and all my equipment. See what I got.

When can I use bleach and when can I not?

I personally would only use bleach on glass, and then rinse it like mad.
