Craft Meister Alkaline Brewery Wash
Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Craft Meister Alkaline Brewery Wash gets the results of professional caustic without burning your skin or hands.  Dissolving rapidly in both hot and cold water, Alkaline Brewery Wash works quickly to break down heavy soils and removes even the most stubborn bottle labels.  Great for an overnight soak, but not suggested for use on aluminum.

The biggest difference between this and an Oxygen based cleaner, is the length of time the cleaner will work.  With oxygen based cleaners, as soon as that active oxygen degrades, you are just soaking in dirty water again.  The Alkaline however, will continue to work long after Oxygen based cleaners stop.  If you normally leave a dirty carboy or keg overnight with PBW or OxiClean, the Alkaline Brewery Wash will do that job better.

  • Alkaline wash cleans brew kettles, corny kegs, fermenters, fittings, tubing and bottles
  • Use on glass, plastic and stainless steel
  • Works in hot or cold water and rinses freely
  • No chalky build-up


Fermenters, Fittings, Bottles and Tubing: use 1 oz (2 scoops) per gallon of water.  For heavy soils and brew kettles use 2 oz (4 scoops) per gallon of water.  Spray or immerse surfaces and allow cleaner to loosen soil for 5-20 minutes.  Rinse with clean water and sanitize, if required.

Great keg cleaner
Product is a bit more expensive than I like but it is a great pre-wash cleaner for those hard to clean kegs.

Saved my wine bottles
I use this product to clean wine bottles. It has helped me to re-use wine bottles that I could not get clean before. I do soak them for about 6 hours in a bucket filled with hot water. I follow the directions for how much product to use per gallon. Then after the water cools down I use my bottle brush on them. The results are beyond words. This soaking also helps in the removal of labels. I have used PBW, it does not do as good of a job.

Only cleaner I use
I use this on glass and stainless steel. Left overnight, it will breakdown nearly anything. I'm not sure why the description says it will not burn your hands. Perhaps it won't "burn" them but it's definitely not comfortable. I highly recommend using rubber gloves when handling this. This stuff doesn't mess around.

My new cleaner of choice
This cleaned spots in my glass carboys that PBW could never get rid of. Claims to work better with overnight soaks, which is what I do on all my equipment. Its a bit cheaper too which certainly isn't bad with as much as I use it.

Dissolves quickly, cleans well, rinses easily
I've come to prefer this cleaner over PBW because this one dissolves more easily with less wait and less stirring, cleans just as well, and rinse water does not have to be hotter than the mixture to rinse well. I think it may also be less dusty because I used to sting the inside of my nose when dumping the PBW powder into the vessel to be cleaned, but that has not happened with ABW. I use it for soaking glassware like growlers, washing out plastics like fermentation buckets, and in the sump pump powered keg washer. It does not foam or otherwise cause me any trouble in any of those applications.
