Funny that you post this, because I was just thinking of this earlier. When I let starsan sit for more than 24 hours, anything that was soaking gets a thing film of "stuff" on it. It wipes off easy, and I've used that equip afterwards and never had any problems/infections, so I know it's still good. But the water gets super cloudy.
But, if I add starsan to a blow-off bottle, even after three days, the water is so clear I can see through it. Possibly because of the constant agitation from the co2 bubbling through. It's worth looking into.
Like I said, though, I've rinsed off the "stuff" in the same bucket of starsan that the equip was sitting it, used the equip, and never had a bit of a problem. So who knows, YMMV, but I've never had an infection from using equipment that has been sitting in starsan for a few days.
