    Purchased this after reading this post on HBF. The container is actually one big bag, not 30 1lb bags. Also, compared to PBW, there is a distinct perfume-like smell. The box that I received is identical to the picture posted. I hope that this product doesn’t taint my future brews.

      Thanks for letting me know Matt. I’ve removed reference to (30) 1 lb bags. Have you used Versatile Free? If so, how does the smell compare?
