Hit them with a caustic wash(drain cleaner) and an acid wash (star san acid #5) and you should be good to go. Most of the cleaners and washes used in production facilities are worse than most lawncare chemicals. Change your seals and poppets and get some beer in them.

If it were me, I'd use them after a very good cleaning. But, ONLY if you are sure it was only glysophate. This is the chemical used in Roundup. It breaks down in the environment in only a few days and it is one of the least harmful of any of the herbicides.

Just my opinion.

If you do decide to use them:
1. soak in water for 24 hours then drain.
2. Soak in muriatic acid solution 24 hrs. Drain and rinse at least 5 times.
3. Soak in oxiclean overnight and rinse thouroughly.
We get carboys from a drug company and a scientist in our club told us to do this.
Good luck if you try it...

No way, absolutely not. No way I'm using anything that's been used for lawn chemicals to produce or store something I plan on eating or drinking. It's just bad, bad practice and asking for serious trouble.

Threads like this (and the washing machine brewer on YouTube) make me glad I'm not a BJCP judge.
