exactly....

even if drinking it kills me, that's fine, so long as it still ferments and tastes good, haha.

If it was in the proper concentration, it shouldn't be a major problem. I don't know if I'd risk it.

so if it was a 5 gallon batch....a full 1/6th of each glass you poured would be sanitizer solution.....for about 60 beers.

I'd dump it out and brew another one.

You didnt happen to be drinking while you were brewing did you?

Don't think it'll separate, make sure to find the number for the Poison Control Hotline before downing more than a pint.
