    There was a very in depth blog on this, but when it comes up in the search, the link doesnt seem to open. Seems to have been deleted?

    I never use caustic on my urn. I spray it off with a pressure washer and occasionally scrub it down with a nylon abrasive pad. Caustic attacks various metals aggressively, and will completely destroy softer alloys and cast iron. I only use caustic soda to clean my fermenters and my stainless steel kegs.

    Also be very careful of any detergents that aren't meant for brewing as they will leave a residue that will affect the beer flavour.

    Since your urn runs between 70 and 100 degrees, there are very few nasties that stay behind as long as you rinse the urn and the tape IMMEDIATELY after brewing.

    Thanks, will avoid caustic, probably better to avoid getting injured. Going to try the PBW from Y-Clean on all my equipment.

    When you say tape, do you mean tap?

    I've been advised and have been using Sodium Percarbonate for cleaning my ss kettle. It works .. but rather slowly.
    btw .. sodium percarb .. is that the same as washing soda?
    Let me google...

    EDIT:
    "The chemical formula for washing soda is Na2CO3 or sodium carbonate. It's a salt of carbonic acid, a chemical that produces a wide range of salts collectively known as carbonates."

    "Sodium percarbonate is a chemical substance with formula Na2H3CO. It is an adduct of sodium carbonate ("soda ash" or "washing soda") and hydrogen peroxide (that is, a perhydrate) whose formula is more properly written as Na2CO3H2O. It is a colorless, crystalline, hygroscopic and water-soluble solid. It is sometimes abbreviated as SPC. It contains 32.5% by weight of hydrogen peroxide."

    there you have it.
    Sodium percarbonate is washing soda mixed with hydrogen PERoxide.

    EDIT2: Formatting
