My question is why do you feel compelled to go stronger?

StarSan works really well. At recommended dilutions it will sanitize every surface it contacts (that isn't already dirty).

Although I can't imagine that making it a bit stronger will hurt anything, it is going to be just as effective at recommended dilutions. Unless you are stripping zinc off of a copper heating element, but I am assuming thats not what you have in mind.

I add the 0.5ml because of the limitations of my measuring device. I figure that given the 1.5ml/32 oz dosage, rounding up to 2ml is a better bet than rounding down to 1ml.

Perhaps I should get another syringe.

It really isn't that hard to measure. I do it whenever I need a spray bottle full. You can get a syringe or eye dropper or pipette. Ask around. I squeeze the original bottle to fill up the 1oz section and suck out the amount I need. The only reason I remove the needle on a syringe is because it is a thick liquid.
