Default starsan

I use starsan to sanitize all my stuff when brewing but when sanitizing my carboy and bottles before using them, the starsan foams a lot and I can never get all the foam out. I know it os no rinse, but will this foam mess with the beer at all?

Don't fear the foam.

It is fine.

No issue, you could drink diluted starsan directly and have no issues.

I use Purisan and the same applies, if you leave some in a fermentor or whatever then there is little to worry about. Not saying you want to allow a gallon to mix but a little foam or minor amount is a non-issue.

It rubs the foam on its' skin. It does this when it's told or it get the blow off hose again.


starsan is awesome. I'm still a little put off by the clinging foam, but I push through it. and I rub it on my skin.
