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.

This is good stuff
I just brewed the ACE OF SPADES (R.I.P. Lemmy) into a big mouth bubbler. It made cleaning the carboy a walk in the park. Recommend to anyone!

Solid Product
Would definitely recommend. Works great. Got an 8oz container with the deluxe kit I purchased. Went with the 5lb tub this time.

No bad batches of beer yet
I have brewed dozens of NB kits and have used this sanitizer for every one of them. With some caution and attention to detail, I have yet to produce a skunky or contaminated batch of beer. Save yourself the hassle of ordering the small package every other batch and buy the small bucket and you will have sanitizer for many batches of beer.

Easiest to Use
Absolutely the easiest way to clean your fermentor, siphon, etc.
Does not create a whole lot of bubbles and rinses easily.

Works as advertised
It is a great easy product to use that sanitizes well. It's my second container of this product. The one thing I would change is to include a measuring spoon.

Works wonders.
Dissolves in water faster than the easy clean does. At least that's what I think. Does a great job sanitizing all my bottles, bottling bucket, & other equipment. Would highly recommend this product.

Great Cleaner and or sanitizer, never had a batch infection using it
I recommend using this alongside star san to get the best cleaning you can for your batches, remember sanitization is the most important thing to take seriously when making beer. Although not all wild yeast or bacterial infections can be bad you might get a brett or lacto infection which can actually make good beer.

Remember if you get a brett infection clean well with one step and star san and a good rinse with purified clean water beforehand.

H A on Sep 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: i haven't ever tried to store it. i only make what i need at the time. Sorry
hi, can this be used instead of a sanitizer like starsan just before bottling? thanks
ray k on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use it before bottling every time. Don’t be confused though, this is not a sanitizer and my bottles have been washed before I use the One Step.
Is this a cleaner and sanatizer?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would not say it is a cleaner that would remove stains etc, but rather a CLEANSER that sanitizes your equipment. I use it throughout my winemaking process; sanitizing everything from the carboys through the bottling process. Has never failed me yet. Just follow the instructions.
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 this a sanitizer or not?
C A on Oct 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: One step is considered a cleanser, but has some sanitizing properties because of the hydrogen peroxide. It can be used for most homebrewing tasks.
How long do let the equipment sit in the solution before it is sanitized and ready for use?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: let the equipment sit in the solution for 2 min of contact time. Do not rinse. ready to use
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.
Does the 5lb option come with the tub or is it a bag only?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2017
Does this need to dry completely before adding brew to it?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is a no rinse cleaner and does not need to be dry.
Can I use this in my pet's water circulator between fills to clean the water reservoir, run through the filter pump, and the bottle if I use a little warm water to completely dissolve the One-Step powder before putting in the rest of the water?
A shopper on Apr 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Don't know
what about shelf life ?
G R. on Aug 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If the product is kept from moisture, it should not ever go bad or lose effectiveness. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
