I thought star san required 3 minutes of contact time?? I do agree that it doesn't matter whether it is liquid or foam... I error on the side of caution when it comes to sanitization!!

I stand corrected...from the Five Star Chemicals web site:

"Homebrew use: Thoroughly wash all surfaces with detergent or a compatible cleaner, followed by a
potable water rinse before application of sanitizing solution. Prepare a use solution of 1 oz. of Star San
per 5 gallons of tap water. Apply on surfaces with a cloth mop, sponge, spray or by a 5 minute
immersion. For spray applications, use a course mist, with pump or trigger spray. Spray 6 to 8 inches
from surface; rub with a brush, cloth or sponge. With spray, cover or remove all food products. For all
applications, allow to air dry, however surfaces must remain wet for at least one minute.
Do not rinse after Star San application."

I went to a restaurant supply store and picked up a white food prep container. Kind-of like a bus tray but it is white and bigger. I also picked up a lid. I think it is made by rubbermade but don't hold me to it. If I remember correctly, it holds 8 gallons so an entire batch of Star-San will fit in it... It also doubles nicely as a storage bin for all my small items of brewing relation.

Now... let me see if I can find a picture of one...

on a side note... I worked with my Dad in his small business hanging wallpaper. I started when I was 6 and worked every day I was not in school all the way through college. so all totaled, about 18 years... It is interesting that not ONCE in that time did we ever use a "wallpaper tray" haha...

Ok... back to your regularly scheduled DIY thread...
