For pin locks:
I never could find the correct fitting at Home Depot but I did at ACE Hardware.
Works like a charm.

Do the math! The sprayer is 56 ounces. The dose for star san is one fluid ounce or 30 mL per 5 gallons of solution. 5 gallons = 640 ounces, so that's 30 mL/640 oz = 0.046875 mL per ounce of solution. 56 ounces * 0.046875 = 2.625 mL. 2.625 mL=0.53 teaspoons.

So yes, half a teaspoon.

I use a small fountain pump and a backflush adapter. Fill a bucket with water and BLC, throw the faucet in and attach the backflush adapter to the pump. Then take apart the ball lock fitting on and put it in the bucket. Turn on the pump and let it circulate for a couple of minutes. Then I'll put the pump in a bucket of plain warm water to rinse the cleaner.

Very simple and much easier than the old spray bottle I used before. Total cost is around $35.

Picked up everything to do this but the post. Plan on ordering some ingredients from brewmasters next week, so I'll get the post then.
