I am new to the forum and have been searching for the topic of secondary fermentation. I notice

I was using Star San, and I have half a bottle which is probably no good anymore.I don't think
it goes bad... As long as it was kept closed and not subjected to extreme heat or cold, I'd
imagine that ...

You can just go at it, probably.Some optional things to look into that may or may not have been
