I don't really pay attention to how much and usually just throw a half to full scoop in whenever I'm cleaning something.

About what I do too. Sure does save a lot of work, specially in tight spots like carboys.

I use Better Bottles for fermentation, so it is a good amount to let sit in the BB over night. Usually cleans everything out. If not, I pour about half out and toss in a wash cloth ans shake it until clean. Pretty simple.

That's so funny. I'm no genius. I learned it from someone else on HBT. I don't remember, so I can't give credit. Let's just credit this awesome forum for doing what it is supposed to do: share beer info.
