Our favorite sanitizer! Star San is an acid-based no-rinse sanitizer that is effective and easy to use.
  • Made from food-grade phosphoric acid, safe for people and the environment.
  • Star San is self-foaming, which helps it to penetrate cracks and crevices.
  • Odorless and flavorless, no need to worry about tainting your beer or wine.
  • Does not require rinsing when used at the recommended dilution.
  • Use only 1 oz Star San per 5 gallons of water and just 1 to 2 minutes of contact time.
  • Used as a soaking solution, it can also be applied by hand (wear gloves) or with a spray bottle.
  • Reusable: a solution of Star San will remain effective for up to three to four weeks in a sealed container; it is effective as long as the pH is 3 or lower.
  • It is safe for use on all surfaces, but use caution since it is an acid; contact with soft metals, rubber, and plastic should be kept to a minimum. Star San is environmentally friendly, biodegradable, and will not harm septic systems.

    Please note, we cannot ship this product by air.

    Distilled Water! PH Strips! Review by Philip
    Rating
    In my experience I have kept about 4-5 gallons of prepared solution in a bottling bucket for immediate access to sanitize. One solution (1 oz) usually lasts me a few months, capable of being reused over and over again.

    How? Use distilled water, and keep some "wine" level ph strips around to test! Distilled water won't go cloudy, and stays under a ph of 3 the whole time.

    Maybe also keep a piece of tape at the level of the star san mixture in case you leave it out for too long and it starts to evaporate. Keep an extra gallon of distilled water for topping up!

    Never had a contamination with this stuff, after I clean any equipment I dunk it in the sanitizer even though I won't be using it again (maybe a little over cautious, but hey, haven't lost a bottle yet!) (Posted on 7/15/14)

    don't fear the foam Review by DrWill
    Rating
    For years, I avoided using StarSan in favour of non-foaming sanitisers because I didn't like the idea of foam going into the finished product. After years of reassurances, I've finally moved to StarSan and couldn't be happier. I've never had off flavours from it, and the foam does a great job of completely covering any surface. As another review has already said, not really worth reviewing this, it's simply a necessity. (Posted on 1/27/14)
