BTW, although I currently have a gallon of starsan made up on the porch for gear sanitization purposes, be aware that starsan is slippery. Using on airlocks and stoppers can lead to airlocks that won't stay in place without doing some kind of self-defeating rinsing/wiping. Last night not only did my stopper climb out of an ehrlenmeyer flask, but after reseating the stopper the airlock climbed out of the stopper! Grrr!
For this reason, I use iodophor for airlocks/stoppers and most sanitizing in general. But it seems this is a minority position; either most people on HBT use starsan or they are more verbal about it.
