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.

I have resource posts on Star San and PBW that have loads of information, tips & tricks.

About Star San

Star San is my homebrew sanitizer of choice.  When mixed properly, it’s food safe and no rinse.  Required contact time is five minutes.  It has worked very well for me for quite some time and I’m convinced that it’s one of the most economical solutions available if you’re using the “Spray Bottle Method” outlined here.

Five Star PBW Cleaner – 8 lbs via MoreBeer

More Info

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

PBW (Powder Brewery Wash) is a safe alkaline cleaner for everything around your brewhouse.
It’s a favorite of small home breweries because it out-performs caustic chemicals without scrubbing. Just put your kettle, bottles, carboy, etc. in for a good long soak.

Even a better deal in bulk quantity. Comes in a bottle with a screw-top lid.

Please be careful when you use PBW in enclosed equipment. When you mix hot water and PBW in an air or water-tight space, it will create pressure.
