The star san worked great on my stone bottles but it doesn't seem to do anything to my Rogue or San Lucas bottles. I have had them in there about a month and can't really get anything off of them. Has anyone else had problems with these?

Yup. Two weeks in starsan and the Rogue bottles are just a little bit scratchy. Some better than others. Most though, I still can't scrape with a fingernail..

I would then use 4 Tbs. per 5 gallons. That should eat through it. Wear rubber gloves when upping the concentration though.

2 tablespoons per 5 gallons of water is the same thing as 1 ounce which is what it says to use on the bottle. I already started at that concentration. Maybe one would need to go even higher on the Rogue bottles.


That is interesting how we can just completely change our posts after already posting

Whoops. Fixed it. I was thinking I always mix mine at 1 Tbs. to 2 1/2 gallons.

This thread deserves a bump because it is a great tip. I had a few Arrogant Bastard bottles that I soaked in Starsan for about a week ... pulled them out today and the paint came right off.

One thing I found odd was that it didn't work on the Double Bastard bottles soaked in the same bucket. Maybe they use double the paint?

Worked fine on my DB bottle, though I had to give it a once-over with a scotchbrite after a couple days to help it along, then soak for another couple days.
