    Nice haul there mate!
    Is that pink stuff "pink stain remover" be careful of that stuff in your kegs stainless ect it's a chlorine based cleaner and yes you have to rinse it well. I've got some here in my brew house just use it on plastics is all I do or glass. Cheers

    I'll go a step farther: Don't use chlorine on stainless. It can etch, discolor, create pits, all stuff you don't want for your bright, shiny stainless gear. Use a non-abrasive cleaner like Barkeeper's Friend. Your shiny stainless gear will love you for it!

    Ya that stuff smells wicked, will definitely be looking for something a little less " go for the throat" clean.

    I clean with oxy clean (unscented), or PBW (Pro Brewers Wash), and rinse thoroughly. Then sanitize with starsan. Once you mix up some starsan you can save it and reuse it. I saved some 4 literl distilled water jugs from Walmart to keep sanitizer in.

    Good to know, from short finger supply?

    OBK is a bit cheaper for a lb..https://www.ontariobeerkegs.com/Powdered_Brewery_Wash_Approx_1_lb_p/1-wash.htm

    OBK is usually the best priced, but shipping can kill the saving.

    I kind of wondered when I bought my chiller and it said shipping could be 2 weeks...I had it in 3 days, maybe got lucky.

    I get oxy clean from Walmart, use that for cleaning carboys, and kegs, it is cheap. I use PBW for cleaning kettle, and mash tun, pumps, best if water is HOT for that.
    I keep two spray bottles, one in the garage, one in the basement. Use them for various on the spot needs. To sanitize carboys, kegs etc, I pour a 4l jug in and slosh it around to get contact on all surfaces. I have a carboy bung for that. Don't worry about the resulting foam, it is a good thing...

    I also put some starsan in a bowl when brewing or packaging to soak the bits and pieces.

    Northern Brewer has a good beginner video that I recall, that I found very helpful.
