Ok I know you guys said to get starsan in my other thread but I didn't have time to get it today and is really like to get my first batch in the fermenter this weekend. So my kit came with this no rinse cleanserbut what can I use to sanitize my fermenter and stuff around the house or from Walmart? I know bleach is usable but needs really well rinsed with pre-boiled water. Help? Or should I wait till Monday and go get the starsan
No its not Mr. Beer its an intermediate Midwest brewing kit with 2 better bottles. But that cleanser is all it came with... :-( I ordered an expensive high gravity recipe kit and don't wanna risk it going bad but I'm dying to get started
I used whatever no-rinse sanitizer came with my kit and it worked fine.
The key if you don't know this already is cleaning and sanitizing. First time around it won't make much difference because your product should be pretty clean outside of dust and the sort. What I use (and there are a ton of options) is a dye and scent free dish detergent to do my cleaning so it's perfectly clean for my next brew so I just rinse dust out and then make my no rinse sanitizer. Starsan will be better than that no-rinse sanitizer though.
