Hmm, so I purchased this a while ago and must say I was not very satisfied with it. Could take a bucket with crap on the sides, put it on the stand with more than enough PBW and let it run for hours and come back and part of the crud still be there. I like the idea, but believe the pump needs to be a higher RPG to really be effective. Your hands and time is just the best option to really clean and make sure your stuff is good for the next batch. My opinion would be to pass personally.
This is one of my favorite pieces of equipment. I primarily use it for kegs and it’s just awesome. I have used it for buckets, but I can’t say that I’ve used it super dirty buckets or fermenters. If you’ve got a bunch of caked on stuff it may be a little outside of range for this.
Yeah exactly. Kegs it does work well as yeah some of the taller (pepsi?) its harder to reach the bottom so its nice in that regard and they’re stainless so its easier. Yeah I have tried just taking my bucket after kegging the beer from buckets, carboys or whatever and have yet seen it really clean whatever I was trying, to the level of being able to spray with san star and add new beer. Ive tried multiple times as well. To each their own, granted ive now transitioned over to conicals to try and get away from any buckets/carboys ever again if I can help it.
I did buy the bottle washer add on but have not yet used that piece yet (may do it this weekend as I have 3 full conicals) to see how effective or good it is.
