Hey Guys, I was recently bottling a hard cider into 1 litre bottles and I think forgot to dump the starsan out of one of the bottles (about 2-3 ounce of a properly diluted mixture). Should I dump this bottle or am I worried for nothing ? Thanks

If you diluted it you will be fine. It breaks down and becomes yeast food.

Yes, it was diluted at a rate of 1 ounce per 5 gallons and there was about 3 ounces in the bottle of that mixture. Thanks Revvy.

A Canadian asking if it's safe to drink alcohol, how embarrassing.
