My black-capped Star San suffered the same fate a few months ago. Stupid caps.

Yep, it happens with the black caps too, both of mine are broke so I used some press and seal wrap as a temp fix.

I had this problem with a black cap on Star-San. PITA

North Country Malt, when I facilitated a bulk buy. Picked up a gallon of Starsan and a 50# bucket of PWB. I split the bucket with a few folks though.
