Default Sanitizer in beer

Five gallons in secondary.

Reverse suction from my sanitizer bucket pulled at most a teaspoon of sanitizer solution into my beer. This is diluted star San, not concentrate.

I'm good, right? Pretty sure I'm fine but I want to hear it from the group.

Heard a brew disasters story on Basic Brewing Radio where a guy accidently left several gallons of StarSan in his fermenter and then racked beer onto it. Contacted StarSan about drinking it and they basically said "Legally speaking we don't advise drinking it, off the record, you'll be fine."

Pretty sure he did end up drinking some of that batch and didn't die. That was pre-fermentation, but I think you'll be fine.

Agreed that with this small diluted amount of star san, your beer will be fine. A simple alternative for the airlock in future batches is Vodka. You can pick up a small bottle for next to nothing.
