Post by: hophead636 on February 07, 2015, 11:26:25 PM
I have always used the oxi free but walking thru sams club they have a box of regular oxi clean is this useable for cleaning or should I stick with the oxi free

I think the difference is that the Oxy Free has no perfumes, dyes or anything that would leave a fragrance and/or tint behind. Though I think it would probably be okay, I use the Free just in case.

I use the "versatile" version found at Costco and Sam's. Have for years. Just make sure it's well rinsed.

Powdered tsp substitute. Should be able to get it at a hardware store. Be sure it is substitute.

The blend I've seen most often is 70/30 oxy/tsp sub.

Yes.  I use Oxi Versatile, which I get at Costco.

I understand this is an inquiry regarding Oxi Clean, but just wanted to throw in a suggestion to evaluate our Craft Meister Oxygen Brewery wash if you can find some in your homebrew supply chain.  The base percarbonate is there for the Oxi Clean effect, but we blend agents into Craft Meister that boost the alkaline pH to loosen soils rapidly and to make the cleaner easier to rinse away with less effort and no risk of chalky white build up on your gear.  You might pay a little more, but the extra investment is returned in ease of use and effectiveness.

Cheers!

I plan on switching to your tablet product once I use up most of my current stock of Oxiclean.

1+ I have used this and I do like it better than either PBW or Oxiclean.  It dissolves much easier than PBW.  The problem is availability!  I often get the Craft Meister O2 BW from the prize packs I get from various homebrew competitions.  (Thanks for your support.)  Unfortunately, I have never seen the Craft Meister products in any of our LHBS.

That's a valid point and that's why I have a job!  We are actively trying to grow the market presence of Craft Meister and a key factor in that growth is demand for our product from consumers.  Many home brew stores are reluctant to carry a product they are not familiar with or that they feel will "not sell."  If you feel comfortable doing so, please message me with some further information and I can try and contact your local shops to have some conversations.

Thank you for your support.
