Hi fellow South Africans,
A friend of mine and I have just started brewing. We bought a Copper Tun starter kit from: http://www.brewcraft.co.za/
and are about to bottle our second batch.
Problem is the 130km trip to Jhb just to get cleanser and sanitizer packets when in need. To bypass this we are using caustic for cleaning and bleach for sanitizer but surely there is a better way?
What do you guys use if you want to use stuff that's just available close by (Many farming sanitation/cleaning products available here)? A no rinse sanitiser similar to Star San would be awesome but I understand it's super expensive to import.
Cheers from Potch.
