OK sorry for the bad info. I have been dumping it when it clouds up, what a waste. Time for a meter I guess

The owner of 5 Star Chemicals stated on a Brewing Network show as long as it's under 4 pH, it's still working.

I watched a video yesterday of a month old cloudy gallon of star san compared to a fresh batch they just mixed up. They tested with a pH test strip and showed no degrading of the cloudy stuff. Don't dump just because it's cloudy. Test the pH.
