How the SymSoil team cleans their GEOtea brewer:

This is the protocol used by the SymSoil team to clean our brewer.  We clean it right after each batch of brew. 

  1. Soak all parts in 1:10 hydrogen peroxide solution
  2. Thoroughly clean with pipe cleaner and flush with water
  3. Be sure to keep track of rubber seals
  4. Use Simple Green and a garden hose to pressure wash
  5. Scrub the inside, including the top and the bottom and corners
  6. Rinse with plain water and drain
  7. Fill to 50 gal add 1000 ml vinegar
  8. Use 50 gal water to flush sump pump and hose used to apply tea

The biofilm is harder to clean if you let it stand overnight.
