+1 on mail-ordering StarSan. It's not very expensive, and a bottle will last forever if used wisely. I only do one batch at a time, so I usually make a 5 gallon bucket when I make my starter, and that lasts me (covered) through bottling day. At this rate, I will need another bottle of StarSan in...three years?

Caveat: I'm a freak about sanitation; I won't let any un-sanitized substance or surface contact my wort.

Wow, thanks for all the quick replies guys! Always nice to have a friendly and active forum when starting a new hobby

I shall go with bleach then for sanitizing. I have confidence in our public tap water here - it's odorless, colorless, and tastes just fine.

Now if I can just find an odorless antibacterial dish soap I'll be all set. What do you guys use that can easily be found locally? I was at Walmart the other day and it's all lavender this and watermelon kiwi that...

If I can't find anything this weekend I'll just pickup some oxyclean as per the sticky.

Chemically Oxyclean and Cascade dishsoap are the same....

I actually read that somewhere on here and i can vouch it cleans just as well, and removes bottles labels just as well too...
