I was doing some sanitizing today and noticed a smell out of the bottle of Star San. I have never noticed this smell before, it´s kind of chemical/medicinal. Is it normal for starsan to smell?
Long story short, Beer.
My wife thinks it smells like cat piss.
I've never stuck my nose in there, and have never noticed any odor at all.
I agree with the chemical/medicinal smell. I think it's normal..
As a mechanic by trade, I have always likened fresh Starsan to battery acid. Not directly a smell, but a burn in the nostrils. As Starsan is an acid, I believe this to be a good sign.
The hardest part of all-grain brewing is arguing about it on the interwebs.http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tims-Craft-Brewing/109802049089362?ref=hl

Yeah smells funny and tastes like crap!
