Hmmm.... Maybe they get sanitzed in something other than Star San, like iodine or something. I have both on hand. Plus if you just dumped what was in the line after racking it over, it should clear...

Wow. I am stumped on this one. I would certainly boil it for 10 minutes to sanitize it. Your idea of subtracting the total weight of sugar in there makes sense.

Wow, good to know that my paranoia with surge supressors on the lagering fridge is well founded! Didn't know Ranco's had issues like that.
