Default C-brite dilution instructions

Hey everyone,

I am a novice homebrewer and I am looking for some definitive directions for using C-Brite cleanser/sanitizer. How much water should I add to a 0.8 oz. packet of C-brite? Also, can I pour it down my sink drain? I would appreciate any information on this!

Thank you,
Brad

You probably wanted to aim for the "Beginners Brewing Forum" instead of this board, just for future reference.

I used C-brite in the beginning(came with my kit) and then switched to Oxiclean FREE(no dyes or perfumes) and I'd recommend that.

Here's the info, though: CLEANSING: Clean object to be sanitized with 1-2 packets C-Brite (0.8 ounce packet) in 2 gallons of warm water and rinse well with potable water. It may be necessary to remove beer stool, gross filth and heavy soil from the surface by a pre-scrape, pre-flush and where necessary a pre-soak treatment.

Sorry, can't answer your q, but the current standard in homebrewing is oxyclean (target, walmart, grocery) for soaking stuff and cleaning it, and star san for sanitizing. If you get the star san, also get a spray bottle from HD / Lowes and mix in there.

Good luck.
