I bought a used 30 gallon food-grade container that was originally used for black tea concentrate. After it was used it was cleaned with some type of unknown cleaner that has a strong smell. It's not a chlorine smell...I do know that.
My question is, what can I used to safely clean my container for brewing use? I've rinsed it and then filled it with water to let it sit overnight.
Suggestions greatly appreciated...
