Or we can just SKIP this cleaning mumbo jumbo and maybe discover a few new Lambics?

Well... it turns out that you even make your own OxyClean.

Water 1 cup
Baking Soda 1/2 cup
Hydrogen Peroxide 1/2 cup

Now, once I figure out how to synthesize baking soda and hydrogen peroxide from items in my pantry, I'll no longer be beholding to the man!!!!

I agree. I haven't been brewing long, but is assume that straight oxi free would do the trick. I would think that the sanitizing part would be the most important.

From SOAPGOODS.COM

Sodium Percarbonate Information

Sodium Percarbonate Detailed MSDS
Percentages:
Sodium Carbonate Peroxyhydrate: > 85.0%
Sodium Carbonate Approx = 13.0%
Sodium Silicate Approx = 1.5%

See detailed msds for more details. (above)

Sodium percarbonate is a white crystalline water-soluble adduct of sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. Sodium percarbonate is the active ingredient in many powdered oxygen eco-friendly bleach products, including OxiClean.

It is an oxidizing agent and ingredient in a number of home and laundry cleaning products. Despite the name, it is, in fact, a carbonate perhydrate. Dissolved in water, it releases hydrogen peroxide and soda ash (sodium carbonate)

The 70/30 mix of oxy free and TSP/90 can and does work just as well as PBW. That dude earlier in the thread who said it doesn't, is doing it wrong.
