I understand and respect your thought process on this one. But how much of your equipment is specifically made for brewing.I prefer PBW, just like i prefer Star San, i guess i am just more comfortable using something that is MADE for brewing use or Brewery Use how ever you want to put it.
I normally soak for a few days mostly because I am lazy. I fill the carboy scrub with a brush then let it soak. Then a few days later scrub again. Then transfer to another bucket or carboy if the water doesn't look too bad.Heavenlybrew said:So the question I have about this is for cleaning my cardboy. Are u suppose to let the solution sit for hours or days? Or will a few minutes and a good scrubbing with the solution do it? I scrubbed and rinsed my cardboy the day I transferred to the bottling bucket with just water but I want a good solid clean before I throw in my next batch. What do you guy's suggest?
I have used Oxy to clean my beer lines. I usually mix up about 5 gallons with warm water in a keg. I then just hook up the keg and run about a gallon or two through my taps. Repeat with clean water. I then starsan my lines. I do this for every new beer. I also try to do this when I'm cleaning my kegs, so I can kill two birds with one stone. I also take my taps apart occasionally to give the inside a good scrub. I haven't noticed a build up of beer on any of the interior surfaces.anybody use Oxy to soak clean beer lines for keezers? That's the only thing I've been using PBW for. PBW and Starsan. Otherwise everything else is Oxy and Iodophor. Much cheaper.
