More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

P.B.W. is a buffered alkaline detergent that has been proven to be more than an effective substitute for caustic soda cleaners. Because of its unique formulation of buffers and mild alkalis, it is safe on skin as well as soft metals such as stainless steel, aluminum, and on plastics. P.B.W. uses active oxygen to penetrate carbon or protein soils and is not effected by hard water. The oxygen also helps in reducing B.O.D. and C.O.D. in wastewater, which is an added environmental benefit.

P.B.W. has been formulated as a C.I.P. cleaner and is very effective in removing protein soils found on brew kettles, fermenters, conditioning tanks, filters and all packaging areas. The concentrations to remove these soils are typically in the 1% range. However, due to soil and water conditions this concentration will vary. To help in hard water areas P.B.W. has been formulated with enough chelators to tolerate hard water over 17 grains.P.B.W. is an excellent choice as a soak cleaner because it does not require excessive heat as do most caustic based cleaners. This product has cleaned brass and copper filters, and industrial aluminum surfaces successfully.

You’ll find many uses for PBW outside of the brewing world. Use it to soak grease from cookie sheets and grills or anything else you can think of!

Works with a range of temperatures
Effective in hard and soft water
Tableted format for easy dosing
Removes soils from difficult areas
Great for CIP, manual, soak, and spray

Dosage: 1 tablet/ 32 oz.
Applications: growlers, spray bottles, glassware

I love PBW!

Five Star Chemicals PBW – Powder Brewery Wash – is my go-to brewery cleaner. It is a non-hazardous buffered alkaline brewery cleaner and it… works great.

This post used to contain prices, but in the interest of keeping information as up to date as possible, it now contains links to some top sources of PBW along with some thoughts about shipping and suppliers.  Historical pricing has been preserved and can be found toward the end of this post.

PBW Guidelines and Suggestions

Why shop around?  Using the Spray Bottle Method for Star San means that I use so little Star San that it’s really not even worth price comparing.  Not so with PBW.  This is something that I go through relatively quickly.  Since we use this in bulk, why not save money and buy it in bulk.  Buy things in bulk that you use in bulk.
