I'm in the same boat here. I'll try to clean some gunk out tonight, or tomorrow at the latest. I'll even post pics!

Right now I've got 1 better bottle of Boddington and one of Apfelwein; I'll flip a coin to see which gets which cleaner.

Got mine yesterday as well. Thanks Forrest!

I have a carboy that I will be racking beer out of next week. I will let the Ultimate Brewery Cleaner clean up after the yeast this time.

Best test though is too take a pot that you are making starter wort in, go to the other room and read HBT, let the starter wort boil until the smoke detector goes off (oops!). Hot PBW took care of that no problem. I can't guarantee a repeat test but I am always doing stupid stuff like that.

Should this be used the same ratios as PBW? I received mine yesteday and there weren't any directions with it (except for what to do if I ingest it).

My instructions were on the opposite side. Here they are verbatim.


"1 Table spoon per gallon in hot (110f to 150f) water. Allow to soak until clean. Suitable for at the above application rate. Extra tough dried matter may require up to 2 Tbsp per gallon of water. Drain when clean and rinse with hot water until the surface no longer feels slippery. Contains Sodium Metasilicate, Sodium Percarbonate and Sodium Carbonate. For product questions or a copy of the MSDS call:

Well heres to being a fool. I hadn't opened the outer package yet and the free sample paper covered up the front label.

I'm going to use this today to clean out 2 kegs, I'll report back my results.

I cleaned out 2 kegs today. One I used PBW and the other this new stuff (UBW). Both did an excellent job of cleaning. It seems like the UBW required less rinsing, but it could have been due to me estimating the quantity of water I added to each keg.

Checking on the prices at AHB I think next time I need to order some cleaned I'll go with UBW since its 9.99 for 2lbs where PBW is 13.99 for 2lbs.

I'll keep using this till I run out, then switch back to my big container of PBW, but when that runs out I'll be ordering UBW. Maybe it will be available in larger quantities for a slightly better discount.

Wish I could quantify the cleaning power better, both of these kegs were unused by me, so they had only been drained of the soda that was in them and still had a bit of residue.
