The solution it makes when diluted is a little slimy in feel. Not sure if that's normal.

Additional sanitation power helps prevent infection
I incorporated this into my sanitation and cleaning regimen to add another sanitation rinse for keeping out wild yeast and particularly with cleaning the carboys between batches. I like using this as a rinse between soaking in brewers wash and StarSan.

Do not overuse
Added too much abiding by the "do not fear the foam" saying. Killed all my yeast and wound up with a flat batch of brew. Going back to Star San. Not saying this doesn't have its application but I tend to over do sanitize and that never happened with star san. Food for thought.

Good Stuff
This is good stuff and I have never had an issue since using it. Yes it stains plastic but I would rather that then put my beer into acid rinse foam regardless if they say it's harmless.

Love this stuff!!
All the benefits of Star San without most of the foam.

Great for CIP sanitation
As others have said, this is THE sanitizer you should be using if you have a CIP system--like Mark's Keg Washer for example. It will still foam in these CIP systems some, but not near as much as Star San (which I also use in other applications).

Great for pump driven keg washer
I really like Saniclean, as I use a pump based cleaner for my corney kegs, and sanke kegs I ferment in. It has a CIP Sprayball and will turn StarSan into nothing but foam almost instantly. While Saniclean does still foam, it is not unmanageable, like the thick foam that StarSan produces. Some people say it is too expensive, but what is the cost of throwing away contaminated beer. One batch of bad beer would pay for a years supply of Saniclean. I have both StarSan and Saniclean, and along with PBW I have a clean and sanitised brewery.

Love this stuff
Must have for bottles and carboys to cut down on the foaming and still have a clean/sanitized surface. I have both this and StarSan in the toolkit. The two of them combine for the perfect sanitizing combo!

Good stuff
I started out using B-Bright and then switched to Star San because of convenience. I always had issues with the amount of foam caused by Star San. I know the saying goes "Don't fear the foam" but I never could just fill a carboy with wort that still had sanitizer foam in the bottom. Then I found Saniclean. Same convenient scalable sanitation without the foam. Granted, I have to use twice as much but its worth it to me. 2-2.5 oz of Saniclean per 5 gallons of water and let everything soak. A quick rinse and sling and I'm ready to go. Cleaning tap lines is a breeze with no foamy buildup to flush out. I also like to make a 1 gallon batch and leave keg and tap parts soaking for a few days in a tupperware container after I finish off a keg.God stuff!

What acid/s does it contain? Is it still phosphoric acid as StarSan?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No acid/s involved. It's a Percarbonate, basically it turns into hydrogen peroxide and soda ash in water and cleans by oxidizing and breaking down any organic material that it's exposed to.
I've read elsewhere that once mixed with water it only has an effective shelf life of a week. Any other thoughts on this?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It all depends on the pH after mixing with water. The effective range is about 2.3-2.8. Higher and it doesn’t sanitize well and lower and it isn’t a no rinse product anymore. If the water you use has a lot of minerals it will react with the acid in the cleaner. Often the mix will go cloudy when the pH has gone up. If you check the pH and it is in range then it is good to use regardless of how old it is. If you use distilled or reverse osmosis water the mix should keep a long time.
Is a rinse required or not? The description has it both ways: "Saniclean does not require a rinse when used at or below 200 ppm.", and "... allow hand-washed parts to soak for 5 minutes, then rinse with potable water. "
R O on Nov 18, 2015

If the mix you are using is 200 ppm or lower then you do not need a rinse. If it is over you do. I hope that helps!
What is the dilution rate for this? Is it the same as StarSan? From reading the description it would leave me to believe that the dilution for no rinse is much less than the 2oz/4gal for soaking.
Valued C on Nov 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is different from StarSan. The dilution rate for SaniClean is 1 oz for 3 gallons of water.
