Default Sanibrew in airlock?

Hi!

I've read about people using sanitizer in their airlock instead of water. Is this safe to do with a Sani-brew solution?

Thanks!

Never heard of it. Star San yes. Idophor yes. Go ahead and use those.

It's the pink powdery stuff. I think it's chlorine based, so my guess is that it's not a good idea to use it in an airlock. I assume it'll ruin the beer if it gets inside?

I use vodka in all my airlocks, don't think any bugs can live in it and if I get any suck back into the fermenter... no problem, I'll never even know its there. I don't usually drink vodka so I just bought the cheapest bottle they had, I expect it will last for years.
