I know the green movement would frown upon this, but what impact might it have on my lawn? Does anyone else drain this stuff into the yard and does it kill grass?

I don't, not sure what it would do. Why not just pour it down the drain? Or better yet, use it to disinfect your garbage disposal or toilet?

It's my understanding that PBW is environmentally friendly. Not sure about StarSan but since it's safe to drink at the correct dilution, I can't imagine it being too harmful.

The acidity of the starsan might harm the grass over time?

I've poured both straight onto bermudagrass in my yard without noticing any problems. I love brewing in the yard for this exact reason.

Diluted to use-strength, I've noticed no harm to plants with either StarSan or SaniClean. PBW on the other hand, I would not recommend on plants. YMMV.
