Default How much oxyclean do you use?

In 5 gallons, hoppy stench in container? Little blue scoop is numbered 1-4. Do you use more than a scoop? Think 1/4 scoop would cut it?

With hot water, it doesn't take much, 1/4 scoop should work fine.

I never really looked but I guess I use between 1/4 and 1/3 scoop in 5 gallons. It has always worked fine.

Get the knock off crap if you can find it. So long as it has no perfumes or anything it'll work fine and is a bit cheaper.

I use about a 1/4 scoop-ish for a 6.5 gallon bucket.

I have had to soak a few times to get the hoppy smell out.
