2% (20g in 1 litre hot water) with 15min contact then a good flush with water and an acid rinse will get rid of any organic matter.

No worries, just remember that caustic alone wont move beer stone, that will need some acid and a scrub.

If what you are wearing does not include safety goggles...... please dont. Do it stark bollocking naked otherwise if you you like, get under the hose fast enough and you'll be OK - but not your eyes.
