Default Drinkin diluted Star san

I'm not gonna die AM I!!!A few day ago I unhooked one of my kegs to sanitize another. I hooked the keg back up, but had Star san in the beer lines. I just poured a beer and as I started to drink the beer it tasted funny. I was like Fu ck. I read the Star san bottle and it said to call poison control. If I don't make it, I have 4 kegs ready to go....

I didn't. Pretty sure the label is referring to undiluted Starsan, that would be bad.

Good luck!!!!! I hate calling poison control!!!!! Once it was for my dog, she ate a WHOLE bunch of one step. Another time for being in a small room while I was using co2, I panicked cause I was home alone. They took forever on that one, they actually put me on hold to go get a supervisor because they didnt know what co2 was..... Read up on co2 and co poisoning for about a week after that....

No I know. Thank goodness it was diluted..My tongue and throat area little warm and my wife isn't even around...I can imagine if I drank straight Starsan.

Listen to the basic brewing podcast about sanitizing (I think its one of the early ones), James is talking to the maker of StarSan. I think I recall him saying you can drink it (straight even) and be fine, but he doesn't recommend you go and do it.

Didn't someone do a demonstration by drinking it, too?

With the amount of star San we use on everything it's obviously fine in small quantities.

Just dilute it in your stomach with water/beer, shouldn't be a problem.

In its diluted state I think you can literally just drink it and be fine anyways.

It does have an odd mouth feel to it

But the aftertaste is really clean! Sorry I couldn't resist a set up like that.
