Default Add Food Coloring to Starsan

I add 2 drops red. Keeps me from squirting something else into my gear. Cheers!

Perfect. Once I grabbed a milk jug that I thought contained water that I had boiled and cooled for the aquarium and started pouring it in. It was starsan. I only added about 1 cup before I realized my mistake as the whole tank turned milky white. The fish survived.

Ummm.....ewww!!! People usually speak from what they know....has that happen to you????

if I had a cat I would have to change the labeling of that beer to "One cat WAS harmed in the making of this beer"

Great idea!

It really stands out because not many cleaning fluids use red.

Yellow would look like pine cleaner, blue might be window cleaner, and green could be mistaken for Simple Green.

My wife also insists I label every spray bottle.

Yea, yellow looks like bleach, so red. Blue and green aren't beer colors. Those were my choices.
