I had a little shot glass with measurements like a regular measuring cup only in ML and Ounces. I left it soaking in the starsan mix for a few hours and when I went to rinse it, there were no more markings... Took the paint or whatever all the way off. So I would be careful about what and how long you soak something in starsan.

I bought one of these at Lowe's but its about an inch shorter than my racking cane so it doesn't work too well. I'll have to keep looking!

That's how you get the paint off of Stone or SOME Red Stripe bottles...Soak them for a week in starsan, rinse, let dry and the paint nearly flakes off....Unfortunately I don't know if Red Stripe switched paint, but half of the redstripe bottles I hoarded haven't flaked off....and ROgue bottles don't work either at normal dillution.

I like the wallpaper tray idea - I will have to run out and get one.
It seems less likely to fall over if bumped.

I just use a small bottle sprayer to do the same.

I've used this from the get go. I like it. If I try to move it, it can be a little unstable, but otherwise works good.

A suggestion after using my setup last night. wine thiefs and stopper and pretty much everything it appears will sink. I made my pipe too long at 24". It holds exactly a gallon, But i need to get long tongs to retrieve anything from the tube. Heaven forbid you loose an airlock to the pits of Davy Jones locker.

For the busy time of racking and filling and spiking with K-meta and pectic. The tube got in the way a bit. Also i did end up splashing EVERYWHERE. I'm expecting a better review for the gravity checks, But the sinking thing is the pits.

You guys are making this way too complicated. Just spray it with a spray bottle filled with star-san.

Inspired by the pics and ideas on this thread, I made a pvc sanitizing tower.
Instead of the reducing coupling on the bottom, I used a 2x3 bushing and inverted toilet flange.
This made it less tippy.
24" of 2" pipe is holding 1.5 quarts of starsan solution.

At least when my daughter eats cheerios off the floor they will be a bit cleaner now.

My autosiphon is 23 inch long and the wallpaper tray I got is 22 inch long Is your stuff fits in your wallpaper tray?
