I make my own PBW with 70% Oxyclean and 30% TSP90.

Measured by weight or volume?

I sanitize my hands in the starsan usually. I don't dunk them, but I spray the outside of the tubing while the tube is filled with the sanitizer. So, I'm thinking my thumb is sanitized enough.

Isnt PBW just really Souped up Oxyclean?  Essentially an alkaline cleaner?

Sorry, totally missed beersk's post a few above this one when I posted the recipe below.  Same thing.  I usually measure it by volume.  It's not an exact science.  You can play with the ratio a bit to find something that works well for you.

My original post:

If you want to make some homemade PBW, use 3 parts Oxyclean (no dyes) or a generic subsitute like Sun Oxygen Cleaner (Sodium percarbonate) with 1 part Red Devil TSP-90 (Sodium Metasilicate) available at most hardware stores.  Mix well and you can have almost 9 lbs of homemade PBW for less than $10. 

This recipe is derived from the description of the make up of PBW given by Charlie Talley (owner of 5 Star) on the Brewing Network.  I have used it for several years with great success.

Not to hijack the thread, but have not seen any mention of Super Pro-Zyme.  Anyone use that?

Measured by weight. Not sure how it works out, but like 2.8lbs of oxiclean and 1.2lbs of TSP90, or something like that to make up 4lbs. It's somewhere around there.

I cleaned lab equipment in high school with Enzyte. If it works the same way, it's amazing.

The first phrase that ran through mind when I read the first post this was "This is Bob.  Bob used to have a problem..."
