Just finished building mine based on the last design. Works beautifully! Happy to have seen this as I started cleaning my first brew's first fermenter!

It just goes to show that the experience of others can be beneficial

I agree with the assessment that the experience of others can be beneficial, so I have to ask (before I build my own), how are you guys cleaning the cloths after use?

Im always curious what people are brewing that requires a brush in their carboys?

Ive never had anything that a soak in warm water and oxyclean overnight , then a good shake and pour the next day didnt get off...

I'm lazy. I just use a scoop of oxyclean and fill it all the way up with the hottest tap water i've got (~138-141 depending on which faucet I'm using). Let that bad boy sit over night and then dump out. I'll probably only need to use a brush every now and then if I dryhopped w/o a bag.

nevertheless, that's a really awesome build.

I used a shamwow cut up in strips and put a hose around the rod so it wouldnt mess up my better bottle. And I used oxy clean and hot water until i made a imperial stout and it was like cement. Made this and havent had a problem since.

Have never, ever cleaned a carboy. Fill carboy with 3 gal of PBW inverted into a small bucket of water for a day or 2, flip over to get the bottom for a day or 2..dump, rinse, clean as clean can be, no extra work that may cut into consumption.

Same here. Put a rubber stopper on carboy. Soak upside down for a day or two. Drain and rinse. Clean like new.
