I just got a box of the oxyclean yesterday at costco for around 15 bucks ... should last a while. So I use about a scoop in a keg and in carboy?

Dan, where'd you get the no-name stuff? Great value, is that wal-mart? What'd you pay and how much bigger, approx? I try to avoid wal-mart whenever i can for multiple reasons:

hahaha yeah dont blame on avoiding wal mart for that reason...

I got the great value stuff from wal mart... From what I saw, wal mart only had the actual Oxi Clean in a pretty small size, maybe 24 oz? It was like 5 or 6 bucks... They also had the Great value stuff for like 7 bucks... I will check on sizes tongiht but it was at least twice as big... So probably around 50 oz.

I should have checked costco... I imagine they would have the best deal.

Oh snap. I'm there just about every week, so I'll be sure to keep my eye on it (and let you all know, of course)

On box: "metals must not be soaked and must be rinsed immediately and thoroughly"

... Ahhhhh, what?

So it's safe to use on metals (assuming not soaked) if rinsed immediately and thoroughly?
I filled 2 kegs with it yesterday and let it sit for upwards of an hour ... Is SS ok to use it on? Anyone else use on kegs?

I've used it on all kinds of things and it works fine... my hunch would be that since it's OXY clean, the metric shitload of oxygen would oxidise some metals (i.e. not stainless).
