Default H1N1 in my brew, yo!

Saw the janitor at work using this, "Quat-128":
http://www.buckeyeinternational.com/...128/index.html

Also:
"Buckeye recommends disinfecting against H1N1 (Swine flu) with Sanicare Quat-64™. This product has kill claims for Avian Influenza, along with Human Influenza and 3 Porcine viruses. Other good choices noted on the EPA list of registered disinfectants against Influenza A viruses are Sanicare Lemon, Mint, and Pine Quat™, Sanicare Quat-128™, Sanicare Quat-256™, Supergard™, Buckeye Terminator™, WATCHDOG NF™, Sanicare II™, Sanicare DRC™ and Sanicare Disinfecting Wipes™."

Anyone know if any of these disinfectants are "no-rinse" or otherwise useful in homebrew applications? Really, do we have to be concerned about new strains of super viruses??!?

I don't think I'd put any of that stuff in my brew. I wouldn't worry about your brew catching a cold.

You don't want to use quaternary sanitizers on anything that contacts beer or wort, they are foam negative.

The nice thing about viruses is they generally can't survive outside of a host for very long. Water and sugars are nice for bacteria, but won't cut it for the finicky flu. Don't worry about it.

If there's anything worse than a new supervirus, it's a new supervirus that drinks beer.

Hide your beer stash, boys and girls!!
