Craft Meister Alkaline Brewery Wash

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.

This cleaner is recommended by spike brewing over PBW because it dissolves in colder water. I use this for my spike brewing products

Can I use this on copper equipment like counter-flow chillers?
M Wags 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.

Nothing short of miraculous
This has changed my brew days completely! A truly no-scrub solution! I haven't touched my brushes since I started using this.

Carboys? No problem. Just swish it around, rinse, and you're done! Have a CIP setup? Then this is a no-brainer.

This works well even at room temperature, but works extremely well with hot water. I love this stuff!

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!
