PBW - Powdered Brewery Wash


PBW cleaner is an environmentally friendly alkaline cleaner. Powdered Brewery Wash is safe for use on metals, rubber gaskets, tubing, plastic parts and your skin. PBW is a brewing cleaner that helps dislodge and remove tough, caked on fermentation debris and sediment before sanitizing kegs, fermenters, beer bottles, and more. PBW creates an alkaline brewery wash that also helps clean brewing equipment and crevices that you can’t reach with a brush, sponge, or your hands. Cleansing and sanitizing are two different processes - learn more on our blog: “How to clean home brew equipment.” Powdered Brewery Wash is trusted by most commercial breweries to clean their brewing equipment, so you know it’s good for your equipment too.
