PBW - Powdered Brewery Wash
Environmentally friendly alkali cleaner. Safe for use on metals, rubber gaskets, tubing, plastic parts, and your skin.
Removes tough, caked-on debris and rinses clean.
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 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.

This stuff works amazingly well for cleaning all that nasty dried gunk out of a carboy that’s been sitting for a month and for hard to reach areas like inside tubes and racking canes, etc.
Package came in quick. Works well so far. Using to clean fermenter, kegs, carboy. No complaints.
In addition to being easy to use for modern home brew glass and stainless equipment, I have also discovered it is great for cleaning and brightening older aluminum kettles.
PBW makes the necessary process of cleaning equipment a little easier. I’ve used this product for many years and am happy with the results.
Easy to use and takes a lot of the work out of scrubbing your carboys.
