..I wouldn't have thought so either. But it made the difference between no bubbling...and bubbling like crazy. I dont like starsan in the airlock....last time I used vodka. When the airlock bubbles once...the starsan forms like 3 bubbles..and then hits the top of the airlock..and it seems like it stops it from bubbling. I poured a little vodka on top..and that killed the starsan bubbles temporarily. If i left the top of the airlock off...I wouldnt have a problem..it becomes a steady bubbling machine w/ the top of the airlock off.
Short of the long: It seems like the starsan foaming action is jamming the airlock
