I recently switched from iodophor to starsan. I used distilled water and keep the starsan in
two 10L plastic cans - I wanted to use it from batch to batch. I did some bottled one batch

I find the baggie rolling pin doesn't work.What does work - it'd take flipping ages - is a

of the glass....

Sadly I really haven't left it long enough to do it justice! I don't know. I think your thread
title suggests that justice has indeed been done in beer form. I can't remember which brewery

170.5 is the strike temp Hold mash at 158.0 for 45 minI have another question. This is a high
