pbw powder brewery wash homebrew

4 lb PBW via MoreBeer.  PBW/Powder Brewery Wash is my go-to brewery cleaner.  It works great!

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.

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.
  • Never buy the 2 oz size of PBW.  If homebrew dentists existed… this size would be a free giveaway after you went to the homebrewing dental hygienist for your regular whatever-those-people-would-do.  You can easily pay the equivalent of over $20 per lb if you were to purchase PBW in 2 oz increments.  I’m not even sure why they make it.  I guess as a sample.  Along those lines, the 1 lb size should also be skipped.
  • Buy the bigger sizes (4 lb+).  If you’re an avid homebrewer and like PBW, it’s something you’re going to use.  Generally speaking, the larger size you purchase, the less PBW will cost per lb.  Buy the largest size your budget allows for.
  • PBW can make a good filler item if you’re looking to qualify for free shipping at sellers that require a certain order threshold to qualify for free shipping.
  • Retailers that charge calculated shipping have minimum shipping/processing thresholds.  Consider placing a larger order to offset that minimum.  Other items may ship for free or not much more.  Along the same lines, take advantage of sellers free or flat rate shipping offers.  Just get ingredients for your next batch or two.
  • Don’t disregard sellers that charge calculated shipping prices, with regards to cost… It’s the total to your door that matters.
  • PBW can be a good add on item for flat rate shippers or an add on item to reach thresholds for free shipping at other retailers.
  • Shop around.  Prices change, sometimes quickly.  With calculated shipping cost sellers, your cost will vary based on your location in relationship to the retailer.

Tip: Using Undiluted PBW to Help with Bottle Label Removal

Part of Our Homebrew Tips and Tricks Series.  Check out the complete list – Homebrewing Tips, Tricks & Shortcuts!


  • Soaking your bottles in hot PBW is not a new technique.  It works well and I would venture a guess that a lot of homebrewers do this.
  • Here’s the tip… If you have a label or bits of adhesive that are being stubborn,   Put a little bit of PBW right on a label or adhesive that’s giving you problems and scrub.  The grittiness of the PBW combined with it’s full strength application generally dissolves the label and adhesive in short order.
  • PBW can be rough on your hands when diluted.  That’s even more true when it’s undiluted.  I recommend using protective gloves when dealing with PBW.
