Well I was pretty excited to make my brew but those f'ers didnt send me any sanitizer!!!! I could not wait so I peed in a bucked and washed my equipment with it. I think things went pretty well. Has anyone every used this method? By my calculations it should work ok. Cheers...

Is urine a "no-rinse" sanitizer?

NOTE TO SELF: No beer-swaps with pshavet...

I suppose you can use it...

I suppose I would have been better off using DogFish Head's Golden Shower as a sanitizer than actually drinking that sh!t...

It would certainly be cheaper than the commercial sanitizers. Plus all homebrewers have the fantastic ability to turn our homebrew into urine. It only makes sense that this would work... it's the circle of life.

Urine is sterile...my new motto: I'd rather sanitize than sterilize.

People drink BMC all the time, but I don't think I would want to try sanitize with it.
