Does your cleaner power through dirt in cold water? Craft Meister Alkaline Brewery Wash does! This versatile and powerful brewery cleaner dissolves quickly and cleans rapidly in cold water in addition to hot water. Ideal for overnight soaking as the solution does not lose effectiveness over time like oxygen based cleaners such as Oxi Clean. Excellent for recirculating keg washers, clean-in-place (CIP) systems, and unmatched at removing bottle labels.

Craft Meister Alkaline Brewery Wash will not leave a white chalky film on your equipment like most oxygen based cleaners and rinses away with ease. Containers include a scoop for easy measuring.

Feature Summary:

  • Cleans effectively in cold water
  • Works longer than oxygen based cleaners; perfect for overnight soaks
  • Removes bottle labels with ease
  • No chalky residue
  • Avoid use on aluminum
  • Non-caustic and will not burn skin or hands

Dilution Rates:

  • 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.

Easier to use than, and just as good as, PBW

Can I use this on copper equipment like counter-flow chillers?
Mark on Jan 18, 2021
BEST ANSWER: You can use this on copper equipment, however you will want to limit the contact time to 30 minutes or less just to make sure it doesn't damage your equipment. A wash with this then a rinse with an acid sanitizer will get your copper clean, shiny, and red again. Cheers!
Can this be used on plastic carboys?
Mark Eckenrode on Nov 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’ve used it on my plastic better bottles and was fantastic. Really was a no scrub solution. I’ve since switched to a stainless fermenter and cannot attest to any issues with longevity.

Can I use this on copper wort chiller
I bought this because I had heard it was safe for copper counterflow wort chillers. But does not indicate that is so on the container or on the manufacturer's website (nor does it say it is not safe). I contacted the manufacturer by email asking about use on copper but received no reply. I can use on stainless, but that was not the intent. Does anyone know (with certainty) if it is safe to use this on copper? If so, I'll change rating to 5 stars.

Great stuff
Best cleaner I have used. Easily blows away pbw and oxiclean. I use this with a new CIP ball and chugged pump. It takes care of it without any scrubbing. Amazing.

I'm Never Going Back to the Old Stuff
It is a great cold and hot water solution! Cleans better and without a waterline and film in whatever you are cleaning (bottles, kettles, etc.).

I get several multi cleans with this solution whereas with oxygenated products, it is one and done. I should have switched to this long ago!

Best cleaner
I've used them all and I can say that this one is by far my favorite. It will dissolve in any temp of water just fine and does a really thorough job cleaning the equipment. Highly recommend!

I'll stick with oxy-clean
Very expensive at the concentrations recommended. Be careful to ensure the powder is completely dissolved; I found a lump of this stuff at the bottom of my kettle after brewing - 70 minute boil! I hadn't realized that during cleanup after the previous batch, the cleaner had not completely been dissolved by recirculation.
