Bleach used in the proper proportions is a perfectly servicable sanitizer that has been used by homebrewers for decades.

Very true but why use it when there is no need anymore? Not properly rinsing Bleach from your stuff can ruin your beer I know this from experience.

Not 'properly' using any cleanser or sanitizer will ruin beer. Proper use of a sanitizer has to be assumed when one is talking about sanitation or every conversation will instantly be derailed by the various 'what ifs' that can be cooked up.


And you do not have to rinse bleach used in the proper concentration.


Why use it? Homebrewers who feel they're on 'a budget' with their hobby find it easier to slip a coupel tablespoons out of bleach already on hand (often purchased for a little more than $1 a gallon) than it is to buy a separate 'dedicated' chemical.

You know what I find more interesting then bleach..... that something as completly uninteresting as bleach is could take up 12 pages, 114 posts and get over 2,700 hits. That to me is real interesting actually..... I'm guessing we are getting bored.

Bleach can cause problems with stainless in high concentrations but not with any sort of solution you would be sanitizing with.

I use star-san. No rinse and not that expensive. It doesn't get much easier than that.
