Default Star san?

I'm brewing a beer right now. I just got some star san I'm trying. I know you say don't worry about the foam! I was going to ferment in a carboy, but after cleaning with star San it's like totally full of foam! Is it ok to fill it with the wort?

I'm not a big fan of the foam, I would rather have all beer in the brew process. Remove as much as you can.

You're good to go. I dump as much as I can and I don't worry about the rest. Never had a problem.

I use starsan for everything. I just treat containers at least 10 minutes before I need them and leave them upside down to let as much as possible drain out.

If you want less foam, don't shake it inside the vessels, swirl it. All you really need for the sanitation to work is to wet all the surfaces.

I don't fear the foam, but as well I see no purpose to leave in what can be easily removed/drained out.
