It wasn't heavily soiled but it had some crusty stuff on it but after a soak and rinse it just came right off. If I'm lucky and I get chance tonight, a quick sanitise and I'll get a Geordie Bitter in!

Hello

I've just got Astonish Oxy Active from Poundland. Is this the same thing as Astonish Oxy Plus? Active ingredient is Sodium Carbonate Peroxyhydrate.

use in warm water and add 1 scoop perhaps 2 to a 5gallon fermentor and let it sit for 20 minutes..
in a corny no more than 1 x scoop and if you want it more concentrated only use 11l of water and upturn the keg 1/2 way thru the soak.. (give it twice as long too)

any higher concentration and you run the risk of crystals growing and welding themselves to your vessels base as the solution cools and if left too long.
(ok i left it overnight when it happened to me when attempting to degrease my thermopot tun after building)
I ended up using a SS scraper and kettle fulls of boiling water scraping off the crystal residue i had amassed..
If you get this in bottles bin em, or consider using a volatile acid..
ist update for months n months..
Fermnting: not a lot..
Conditioning: nowt
Maturing: Challenger smash, and a kit lager
Drinking: dry one minikeg left in the store
Coming Soon Lots planned for the near future nowt for the immediate :(

Yes, I agree, having had the evil deposit from Oxi :evil: and had to rinse a load of bottles in strong Star San to get rid. 2 Scoops per 5 gallons max. It still cleans fine.

Can the solution be re-used from one dirty vessel to another or has the cleaning power been used up?

I tried the reuse method with my IanB cornies and have noticed some are not as clean as others.
Yes as long as the solution feels soapy/slippy its thinning/wetting the water to act as a better solvent, while still warm is best for the full on action tho the rising o2 will help lift grime and that dies down when the liquid has cooled right down.
