DetailsPBW stands for Powdered Brewery Wash. This product is widely used in commercial breweries across the country. Use 1 - 2 ounces per gallon for cleaning boil kettles, or an ounce per gallon for fermenters, kegs and other brewing equipment. Soaking overnight will easily remove stubborn, caked on organic deposits without scrubbing. PBW is environmentally friendly, biodegradeable, and will not harm septic systems.

Browse 7 questions Browse 7 questions and 16 answersHow well would this clean the stain from inside silicon tubing?BEST ANSWER: Not too well but what I do with the plastic tubing as it comes with brew kits: I hold the tube in a U-shape, sprinkle a few granules of PBW into the tube, add warm water until the tube is almost full, then wrap a folded Kleenex around. A big office paper clamp goes around that and with a little paperclip I hang it to the bathroom lamp chain overnight. Next morning I dump it, rinse a few times and hang up to dry. The stain doesn't go away but it does clean out all the gunk. Don't get the PBW onto any sensitive surfaces or clothing, it's pretty brutal (I guess it's supposed to be).can I use this to clean the bottles?BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can use to clean glass bottles to get out stuck on grim. You dont need much. I wash out afterwards with water and a bottle brush, and you still need to sanitize before use.I used PBW and forgot o rinise with Star San before transfering product. Is it ruined?BEST ANSWER: It depends on what you used PBW on and when. I use PBW on my kettles after I brew. I will rinse out the kettles after they are clean with fresh water and dry them. I will probably brew again in 2-4 weeks. I have never used Star San on my kettles after I have cleaned them. I have not had any problems with this process and my brews have turn out great.PBW calls out oz. per gallon, what is the equivalent to tsp. Or tablespoon per gallon?BEST ANSWER: I believe and been doing myself, 2 Tablespoons per gallonWhat if I forgot to sanitize after using this. I transfered to another carboy. Is it no good anymore?BEST ANSWER: You should be fine. As long as the PBW gets the carboy clean and you have residual active yeast, you will probably note CO2 bubbling out of your airlock. As long as a nice CO2 layer blankets the wort, bacteria should remain at bay.Greetings: how does the PBW work on cleaning out stainless steel containers that have held Olive Oil? In other words, is it safe and does it eliminate olive oil residue? Kindly let us know, thanks,BEST ANSWER: Hello,
PBW more than likely will not remove the oil. You will need to use a degreaser such as Simple Green, followed by multiple hot water rinses to remove the detergent. After that, I would do a hot water soak with PBW. It might take a long soak and some elbow grease to remove the oil completely. I hope that this helps!Does Midwest sell PBW in larger than 8 lb size?
