Allocating fermenters.

Sorry to hear about needing to tip the beer :-(

I understand that Sodium Percarbonate (essentially, OxyClean) may react with highly mineralized water and leave residue on the sides on a fermenter (that may need to be washed out with vinegar).

I further understand that PBW doesn't have this problem.

Is your water high in calcium?

I can confirm the residue left behind by Sodium Percarbonate as we have about 150 mg/l Calcium. Regarding PBW I can tell you tonight as I filled a carboy last night with PBW solution.
