You don't want to use bleach or iodophor with a septic system. You'll kill the enzymes needed for a septic. I gave away my quart bottle of iodophor to a friend who is on a city sewer and use strictly StarSan for sanitizing and Oxiclean & PBW for cleaning.

Thanks Ed...You just saved my septic. I was going to brew tomorrow, but now I have to figure out how to sanitize.

Guess I'll order some starsan.

You'll be fine, just dump stuff outside. My all grain mentor would dump all his iodophor stuff on his driveway. His grass was green. Just don't dump it down your drain into your septic system.

I love it when I dump trub and a yeast cake down mine. I know I'm feeding the good enzymes with caviar.

Thanks - they do appear to be pop-tops. However, I'm in Baltimore and they're in Oregon. I haven't seen them out here. We happened to get ONE bottle of Red Stripe at our party last night. I'll be trying this out very shortly. I'll keep you all updated.

hmm I see them all over the place...Like I said though I haven't tried it. They only sell in 12packs and I've been buying lots of singles/build your own sixpacks. We're having a party this weekend so I'll pick some up and let you know how it is.

It sounds pretty good, I've been thinking of doing a Classic American Pilsner latley and didn't think there were any commercial examples

Good luck with the red stripe.....I hate that beer!

Well, I could not wait a week, so what the heck, here's the bottle after 6 days in StarSan.



I rinsed it and waited 10 minutes and there was flaking around the bottle, so I picked it up and put in under warm water and wiped it clean with a scotch pad. It took about 4 seconds to wipe off.



The finished bottle. You can see some of the paint that flaked off while it dried and the shadow of the Stone logo.
