Cleaning new stainless steel fermenter

Postby iwoo » Tue Mar 28, 2017 10:13

I have just had delivered a 50 litre stainless steel happy fermentor from Italy. It will replace my plastic fermentor. How do I clean it out before first use. It appears to be very clean inside. Do I need to passivate it ?

I don't see why you would need to passivate it. I'd just give it a good clean with warm detergent and a non-stick scourer to remove any oils then rinse with hot water. Lots of hot water.

+1 for a good clean

I'd probably boil some clean water in it afterwards too, just to be sure and get rid of any 'newness', if that makes sense.

SS Brewtech recommend cleaning their stainless fermenters with PBW or TSP followed by passivation. I used citric acid.

Ok thanks for the information I will try the detergent and scouring followed by a mild citric acid warm flush

i wouldnt use detergent, it leaves deposits that are hard to rinse off that can kill head retention in your brews. unscented generic laundry oxi is a good soak cleaner ;)
