Product Details
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.

Does the form of the solution affect the head of the beer if used to sanitize the bottle?
A shopper on May 26, 2015
Best Answer: The foam will not affect the resulting beer. A little bit of the foam will not affect head or flavor in any way, just follow the mixing instructions.

Do you have a product to test the PH level?
Chris G on Feb 9, 2015
Best Answer: Winemaking PH test strips are the easiest way to test the PH level of your Star San solution. They read down to 2.8 so you can use them to quickly and easily tell if your solution is strong enough. They can be found in the Wine Equipment section under Measuring & Testing.

How long does this last? What about once it's mixed with water?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: According to the MSDS, when stored at room temperature and away from metals and bases, the active phosphoric acid has a shelf life of up to 2-3 years.

Once mixed, Star San will remain effective as a sanitizer as long as the pH is at or below 3.5. The amount of time it takes to reach a pH of 3.5 depends on the water you are using to mix the solution. Using distilled water will ensure that the pH level stays low for quite some time. Using distilled water also prevents the solution from becoming cloudy. With low mineral water, you can expect a solution of Star San to remain viable for 3-4 weeks. When using high mineral water, the solution can be buffered above 3.5 pH in a matter of hours.

Do I need a sanitizer if I use a powdered cleanser?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: We recommend that you use a cleaner first to remove any caked-on residue, and follow it with sanitizer before use. Sanitize equipment as a final step before use.

Is this better than One Step?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: For sanitizing, yes. Star San is meant to sanitize and it does the job well. One Step, on the other hand, is an oxygen-based cleaner for removing crusted-on residue, not thoroughly sanitizing brewing surfaces. One Step can be used in a pinch, but it is not nearly as effective as Star San or other purpose-made sanitizers.
