Oxyclean and Therminator
« on: July 18, 2013, 06:40:25 PM »
Is it okay to run oxy thru the Blichmann Therminator? Planning on using it tomorrow for the first time and don't have any PBW for a backflush after the brew.

If PBW would be OK, so is Oxiclean.

Yeah, the oxidative agent in PBW is, if not the same, very chemically close to oxiclean. FTR you can make homemade PBW by blending oxiclean and TSP substitute. Can't remember the ratio off hand but I think it is 2 parts oxygen cleaner to one part TSP substitute.
