I have some weird/concerning gunk in my Keggles. After my brewday, I "sorta" rinsed out my keggle and refilled both my keggle mashtun and keggle brewpot with water and oxyclean. I kinda forgot about it after about a week. I went downstairs to find that both keggles have what appears to be hard water stains or oxyclean stains on the walls of the keg.

I then boiled it for about 15 minutes in water, and it seemed to make it worse. Anyone know a surfire way to get this stuff off? Would I ruin a keg by putting some clr on it and trying to remove it?

Vinegar or some other sort of acid will take it off.

This worked great! Did the same thing for a carboy as well.
