Default Bucket stain

I racked my Nut Brown ale last night and washed out the bucket and there is a stain ring. This was my third batch in this bucket. I tried using bleach to get it out and it sort of worked, but there is still a residue. Is this something I should worry about? What works to remove it? I left my starsan solution in it overnight too, but it was still there in the morning, but I wasn't expecting it to do anything.

I have had problems when I used a bucket too. Try boiling some water. then drop in some bleach and slowly poor it directly on the stain while its still boiling. just watch out for the fumes...there not nice. this took care of it for me. as soon as I was done pooring it on I scrubbed it real quick and it came right off
