I use 1 scoop - 4 ounces as marked on the side of the scoop - dissolved in 6 U.S. gallons of water. That is approx. a 0.5 % by weight solution.

Now that is a better description than a scoop...you are using a closed hand fistfull or is it a fistful ? One l or two?

I always use between a granule and a whole tub per cleaning..
A granule if I'm cleaning a filthy thimble, and a whole tub if I'm cleaning the swimming pool..

beer stuff is somewhere inbetween...

Exactly... that is a much better answer to a question than an authoritative scoop.

I've never measured ........ just scoop a little and dump it in. I would say probably about 1/4 of the green scoop they give you or maybe even a little less is what I use for cleaning a keg/carboy/5 gallon bucket full of bottles.

I casually dump a little in the carboy or keg (whatever I'm cleaning) and fill with water. I've never had a reason to use more than that as even the dirtiest of carboy is pretty much sparkling clean without ever even busting out the carboy brush ..............

I am usually lazy and end up letting it sit there with oxy clean in if for 3 days to .................. 4 weeks was my record. By the time I get around to rinsing it my oxYclean has more than done it's job.

Since its just a cleanser, not a sanitizer, the dilution doesn't matter...as long as it gets your stuff clean.
