Ya... they are right, no need to rinse. but I have been doing it for years when kegging.

I rinse with water from the tap and it is clean and have never had a problem.

We clean our beers stuff because it can have residue left over that the "little beasties" can grow in. If they are still present when we toss new wort in they have a "field days" and start reproducing...

Not really a problem for most people and their municipal water system...

What if its not dry? Lets say I have an inch of foam left in the bottom my Better bottle is it ok just to dump the wort on top of it? Or a couple inchs of foam left in the bottom of my corny keg?

Yes, as I said in my first post in here, it becomes yeast food.

Not said yet: If you rinse the Starsan off you are then relying on how sanitary your tap water is. In other words why bother with the Starsan in the first place if you are going to rinse it off.

I answer at least 5 starsan questions a day, I know I mentioned it in other threads about it. But yeah it breaks down into many of the same benign compounds found in most soft drinks, especially colas.

Haha. What part of the English language don't your understand? I believe no-rinse just about covers it.
