Product Details
Contains no chlorine, which can leave a film on glassware and corrode stainless steel. One Step is an excellent oxygen based cleanser. Requires two minutes of contact time, no rinsing required! Environmentally friendly and non-toxic. Use 1 tablespoon per gallon of water.

Note: while technically a cleanser, One Step does have some sanitizing properties through the release of hydrogen peroxide. It can be used in no-rinse applications in most home brewing tasks.

Does the job.
Have solely used One Step for sanitizing and never had any issues. No rinse is key and it does the job perfectly.

works great as a Sanitzer
Even though it's not marketed as a sanitizer I've been using it as such for a couple of years with absolutely no problems.

Part of my sanitation arsenal
First tried 1-step after receiving a sample at NHC. Liked it so bought and blew through an 8-oz packet, so went for the 5-lb tub. Easy to use and makes my carboys look nearly new. Never had an off-flavor issue when I've used it.

I love this stuff
For years I sanitized the old fashioned way,using bleach and water. I finally tried One Step and discovered sanitizing Nirvana. Easy to use and reasonably priced, One Stepis wonderful.

Highly Recommended
Have not moved to kegs [yet] but do tons of bottling and all grain brewing. I might change my mind after kegging, but considering ALL the moving parts associated with bottling an all grain brew, I've never had any problems in more than 40 five gal. batches using 1 step. Good Stuff at a good price. Cheers!

use for cleaning and sanitizing
I bought a bucket of this and never touched it as I typically use bleach to sanitize my fermentors. But when I started kegging I knew I needed something less harsh so I started using One Step. Works like a charm! Have not had a problem yet. Have at it.

Always use One Step
I have used One Step for 12 years and have never had any kind of problem with infections in wine or beer. It is easy to use and requires no rinsing. Stay with One Step instead of Easy Clean, which is less expensive but in my opinion not as good a product as the reformulated One Step.

Great cleaner
I use this in conjunction with starsan. Some might call that over kill but I did have a batch get infected a while back due to just useing this as a cleaner/sanatizer. I know people say you can but after the infected beer I would rather be safe than sorry and still use a sanatizer.

Great product.....never failed me
I use this to sanitizer all the equipment that comes in contact with the cooled wort and tools used in kegging. For the last 6 or so years this has been a staple in my homebrew supplies.

Can I use this to sanitize bottles and caps?
James B on Jan 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't use it on caps for two reasons, one, It's an oxidizer and there's no way to predict how it would react to different cap coatings, and, two, boiling caps is easy, works great, and softens their seals.

Is it safe to clean out my Dishwasher from all the hard water action in there.
G E on Oct 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've never used One Step for that purpose. Seems like the best additive would deal with the constituency of the build up you have. Example, if it is calcification, an acidic rinse might be the solution.
