      Sounds like sodium metabisulphite, a fairly mild sterilizer used by home
      brewers (in UK sodium meta. also comes in a tablet form known as Camden
      Tablets). I think it works by releasing sulphur dioxide on contact with water,
      don't know if this is strong enough to sterilize stainless steel but I suspect it
      won't be. I keep my empty plastic brewing containers sweet while not being
      used by putting 1/2 cup sodium met. solution in them before resealing &
      putting into store.
