I've heard on here several times that StarSan can remove paint from bottles (such as rogue bottles).

What concentration does the StarSan have to be for this to work? I know it doesnt work at the usual concentration used for daily sanitation.

TIA

i had a 2 month old batch of StarSan that I used (regular strength) and it was taking the paint off my Stone bottles pretty good (tested with 2 bottles to make sure it would work).

I dumped that into a bigger container though, added a few more gallons of water and tossed in another dose of StarSan, so at that point it was probably 1.5 to 1.75x the normal amount. Worked out great for me. I had a harder time with the Rogue bottles compared to Stone bottles.
