One Step is the only environmentally sound, nontoxic, no-rinse cleanser on the market today for brewers and wineries. Unlike other cleansers that require rinsing because oftheir alkaline nature orthat use materialsthat can be harmful to the environment, One Step -- the original no-rinse cleanser -- uses active oxygen to clean your equipment.
One Step is an excellent oxygen based cleanser. Requires two minutes of contact time, no rinsing required!
Contains no chlorine, which can leave a film on glassware and corrode stainless steel. One Step is an excellent oxygen based cleanser. Requires two minutes of contact time, no rinsing required! Environmentally friendly and non-toxic. Use 1 tablespoon per gallon of water.
- Gentler and safer than caustic-based cleaners
- Effective at breaking down soils and removing stains
- When used at concentration as directed, no rinsing is necessary*
- Compatible with all vessel and equipment surfaces; non-corrosive
- Readily biodegradable and non-toxic
- Complexes and suspends hard water salts that lead to scale
- Buffered to maintain a low pH
- Utilizes active oxygen to de-stain and disrupt organic soils
* Note that rinsing is necessary if visible soil is present.
Cleaning with One Step
Proper Use: 1 Tbsp/gallon water or 5oz/10 gallons. Ideal contact time is at least one minute, followed by mechanical action such as water spray, brushing, or wiping. If cleaning heavily soiled surfaces, a rinse is necessary to ensure the removal of all soils. If One Step is used on a surface which is clean to the naked eye, rinsing is optional. Residues of One Step are non-hazardous when small amounts come into contact with wort of must.
One Step Removes: The residues of home fermentation hobbies on glass, metal, and plastic surfaces. Use One Step to clean mash tuns, boiling vessels, fermenters, chillers, spoons,rakes, fermentation locks, and any other equipment that is used in the brewing,winemaking, or fermentation process.
How It Works: One Step consists of a buffered alkalinity and active oxygen. When dissolved in water, the result is an alkaline solution (approximately pH 9.5) presenting 0.1 percent free oxygen and 1000 ppm alkalinity (as Na2O). The following modes of action are represented in the resulting aqueous solution:
Active oxidizers easily disrupt and solubilize proteinaceous soils such as those found in typical foodstuffs as well as biofilms that may develop if the substrate to be cleaned has remained soiled for a significant amount of time. Furthermore, tannins from grains and fruits are decolorized and removed.
One Step is the only environmentally sound no-rinse cleanser in the home-brew market today and, unlike other cleansers that require rinsing because of their alkaline nature or use materials that can be harmful to the environment, One Step is the original no-rinse cleanser and uses active oxygen to clean your home-brew and winemaking equipment.
One Step uses oxygen entrained within a mineral crystal that dissolves when combined with water, which in turn releases the oxygen to form hydrogen peroxide – a compound long known for its sanitizing and disinfectant abilities. The hydrogen peroxide completes its work and then degrades into oxygen and water, leaving behind only the minerals that are stable, naturally occurring compounds – no different than minerals often found in drinking water.
In addition, One Step uses a very small concentration – only 1 tablespoon per gallon! – so the solution easily drains away, leaving very little solid material behind. In fact, most of the mineral content that may be left behind is the same as what you would find in your drinking
