I received an Essential Starter Kit this holiday season and had a question about the Oxygen Wash that was provided. I can’t seem to find anything about the product on the packaging, instructions or anywhere else. I’ve spoken to a few people in other forums regarding the matter but I want to see if anyone here has experience given the product is sold thru NB. According to the packaging 1 oz. of the product mixed with a gallon of water is suitable for sanitizing equipment. There is no mention as to whether the solution needs to be rinsed away before using equipment that has been sanitized, so I simply sprayed some on with a spray bottle, waited and then wiped it away with a clean towel. Brew day came and went and now my beer is fermenting in aforementioned fermenter. I’m wondering if I should be concerned that I didn’t rinse away the wash. I’ve bought some Star-San in the mean time (wishing I had waited) but I’m learning patience is a key aspect to this hobby. Thanks in advance for any insight you might have.
EDIT: Just spoke with NB - According to the representative Fermenters Favorite Oxygen Wash does NOT need to be rinsed away. Hopefully this information helps someone else.
