I bought a pair of used carboys off Craigslist. When I got them out of the car and into the daylight the inside walls were covered with thin film of brownish gunk. “No problem,” I told myself as I reached for my carboy brush. Nope. A brush wouldn’t even scratch that stuff. After asking around and then looking on YouTube I found PBW, ordered it, and gave it a try.  “Holy Crap!” That gunk literally peeled itself off the walls of the carboy and was floating to the surface in a couple hours.
This stuff really works!  PBW is perfect to take off beer lables from bottles – put a 1/4 cup into a soaking tub, fill it with warm water and in the morning all the labels have lifted off you can just wipe them clean.   PBW can effectively clean items that can’t be reached with a brush or sponge, like your sight glass or inside tubing.
