Product Details

PBW (Powdered Brewery Wash) is a patented alkali cleaner originally developed for Coors, now widely used in commercial breweries across North America. Use 1 to 2 ounces per gallon for cleaning kettles, 3/4 ounce per gallon for fermenters, kegs, tanks, and other equipment. Soak equipment overnight in PBW solution; rinse the following morning - no scrubbing required! Will not damage rubber gaskets, soft metals, or your skin. PBW can effectively clean items that can't be reached with a brush or sponge, and is strong enough to remove thick, difficult, caked-on organic soils.

Keep a bucket of PBW solution around for cleaning small parts when needed. Recirculate a hot solution of PBW through your pump and counter flow chiller to remove hidden debris. Perfect for cleaning kegs or bottles before sanitizing. PBW is environmentally friendly, biodegradable, and will not harm septic systems. It also works great as a household cleaner too. 

Rinses clean leaving equipment ready for sanitizing with a dedicated sanitizer like Star San.

Could I run this through my Keurig to clean the inner parts that I can't reach?
MaryL on Jun 5, 2015
Best Answer: Unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with the Keurig device to offer advice on cleaning. You should check with the manufacturer of your Keurig to find out the proper cleaning procedure and if it can handle this type or percarbonate cleaner.

Will this work for my Vitamix blender? After six months of making daily spinach and blueberry smoothies, it's got lot of stuff caked onto the walls that normal scrubbing won't get off (I assume organic matter and minerals from the water).
Jordan E on Jul 26, 2015
Best Answer: PBW is specifically designed to clean organic deposits and stains. So at the proper conentration and a 30 minute soak, it should take off anything that is caked on.

What about cleaning glassware?
Alex M on Jul 21, 2015
Best Answer: PBW works great for cleaning everything! Probably do not need a very concentrated cleaning solution to clean glasses, so a little would go a long way.

for bottle cleaning, it it okay to use at room temp (especially if there is no caked on crud)?
Matthew H on Jun 20, 2015
Best Answer: You can definitely use it at room temperature without any issues. It may just require a longer soak for tough debris.

for bottle cleaning, can I just let it sit for a couple hours and rinse with a star san solution? Or must i rinse prior to sanitizing?
Matthew H on Jun 20, 2015

Does it stain clothes?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2015
Best Answer: It does not in my experience. However, it is a cleanser and could possibly affect some dyed fabrics, I'm sure, like any other detergent.
