Description

Star San is an acid-based sanitizer that is quick, odorless, tasteless and safe for most materials except softer metals. As a high foamer, Star San's foaming action insures coverage and contact time in larger vessels and better penetration into nooks and crannys. Star San and is perfectly safe and non-toxic: any foam that is left over in your vessels or on your equipment will not harm your wine or you. Star San will not impart any flavors or odors.

Star San is easy on the environment as well: Despite being a very effective acid-based sanitizer at its prescribed concentration, raising the pH well above 3.5 (using simple baking soda or any waste PBW) renders Star San inactive as a sanitizer and the raw ingredients actually feed the aerobic bacteria found in septic systems or wastewater treatment facilities!

To Use:
Use of 1 oz per 5 gallons of water and a contact time of 1 minute makes Star San very economical and convenient.

If you plan on making some up for spray applications it is best to use distilled or RO water to maximize the life of the unused portion (minerals in tap water reduce the shelf life of Star San once in solution). If a lower foaming alternative is preferred for bottling, filtering, or a final acid rinse, check out Saniclean.

Complete information on cleaning & sanitizing can be found in our Cleaning & Sanitizing manual.

Industry standard
Sanitation is one of the variables in brewing even the beginning brewer has complete control over. At the homebrew level, Star San is really your only option. Worry free and easy to use.

Absolute Must

Great sanitizer!
This product works really well. I will continue to use it. Way cheaper than other places.

Easy to use
Love this for ease of use, only problem is it tends to foam up if you put it in before adding water

An aboslute must-have
Absolutely necessary to have this on hand in the brewery. A little lasts a long time, nice to have a some peace of mind at such a relative low price. This is the right product for the job. I keep a sealed 5 gallon bucket of it mixed up at all times, change it out when necessary.

Fast, simple product
I've never measured for bacteria or wild yeast and have never gotten sick. I use this product always and everywhere to ensure sanitary brew and bottling. I've even used it to sanitize canning jars, and have similar good success.

A little goes a long way
This is my preferred size to get, because it last a long time, but not so long that it loses effectiveness or the screw caps get weakened by time.

Of course we want to write a review, because the stuff works and my beer tastes..
Tastes great, never had a problem yet, not sure how it sanitizes and does not hurt the Beer, but it does and works well.

Don't be tricked by a bunch of foam, it will condense to liquid you may not want in your Brewing equation, but besides that works great!

Reliable product
Never a concern with sanitation when using StarSan. The measurement reservoir at the top works well to deliver an accurate dose. When using at full recommended strength I wear vinyl gloves, as recommended.

Only Sanitizer I Use!
Works to sanitize everything in seconds! Definately wear gloves when working with it though. It will dry out your hands real quick.
