LOL, that is really funny and good to know at the same time, lol. You pay all that money for something so expensive and a simple beer-maker's sanitizer etches your brand new Pella or Anderson windows.

I need to find out if we're related. Maybe I'd get free Stan San for life. I only have about 2 or 3 ounces left.

LOL, I'd opt for just 1% of his company and then try to sell everyone you meet on it for everything the produce, lol. He'd be like, "Cousins?????"

Squatter's Brewery in SLC has a Jenny Talley who has loads of gold medals from GABF on her German style beers. Her Kolsch & Swartzbier are the two I could see from my seat at the bar.

Any relation?

I agree with this statement "if" you aren't using pH papers to test your solutions. I mix my Star San with distilled or Reverse Osmosis water in 5 Gallon batches. Everytime I open the solution bottle (plastic carboy) I first shake it up and then pour some off to test.

For coming on 9 months now, I have had a 5 gallon mix of Star San that has yet to change pH from 3. It will store in solution much longer than you'd expect and you can use much less than you'd think prudent. A spray bottle to coat surfaces is really all you need.

Agreed -- time should not be used to judge whether your Star San has lost its effectiveness or not. The clarity and pH of the solution are the only truly reliable indicators. If made from mineral-free water and stored in a non-reactive vessel, Star San will potentially keep for months (I have kept it in a glass carboy for 5 months, no problem).

So...If its not good to soak for more than 3 hours with star san, where do you store your batch of star san when your done with it?
