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.
