Haven't heard from Silo Ted, Yasmani and Mike Litorous for a while................How's cocko by the way........
That's a pretty comprehensive link that you have supposedly read. I really don't know what you want anyone to add to it.Thank you for the link, I have read that already.

If in fact you have read that link and still need to ask questions then maybe making beer is not for you.
Go buy some VB. h34r: h34r:
To clarify for the new brewer, use a kitchen sponge, not your current kitchen sponge. The one you use for everyday washing up will be swarming with bacteria. Buy a packet that will be dedicated only to the brew gear, and change often.
Here we count out 673 beads of napisan. That will be the correct ratio for a thirty litre fermenter,For all of you harassing me for asking questions, GO **** YOURSELVES.
For all of you great guys putting up with me and answering my questions as best you could. THANK YOU!!
Hold on, hold on, this is getting confusing. You didn't say whether to swirl clockwise, or anti-clockwise to dissolve. I really need a simple answer, and fast, because I'm counting out the 673 beads right now.You may need to shack and swirl the solution for this to happen
Appologies Jay Cee, Just to correct this oversight, I find the shaking and swirling anti-clockwise will impart extra exitement into the anti-muck ensymes, which will greatly aid in the cleaning process.Hold on, hold on, this is getting confusing.

You've got me intrigued now.OK, I have been down to the local homebrew store and spoke to the owner and got some very simple instructions and answers to questions on why things work the way they do with cleaning and have finally worked out why I have been so pedantic about this cleaning business. The reason being is in every piece of literature CLEANING AND SANITIZING IS KING.
Your local brew shop should sell em. Might also find them with the HB gear somewhere like BigW.Thread hijack on the subject of cleaning so not totally Off Topic. Stupid Question where do you buy a bottle brush? Seen them in youtube videos but never spotted one in the local shops like Coles or Woolies. My PET bottles feel a little oily inside now after multiple brews and I do give them a good rinse and shake straight after use.
I'd be using a fresh sponge. While the microwave sterilisation may work I wouldn't be willing to risk it. A pack of 50 home brand sponges, $2. Peace of mind, priceless.Yes, I have done this already Jay Cee, and also if you did not know this. Soak your sponge in water, put it on a plate, 3 minutes in the microwave and you now have a sterile sponge.
