Why does it turn pink? Anyone else had this happen? Is it not good after it turns pink?

It's like a mood ring. That means it likes you. Watch out if it turns brown.

Actually, I've never seen it turn colors. What are you using to store it?

Its not rainbow colored.

It does it quickly when I sanitize my bottles. I thought at first it was because I was leaving the labels on and the adhesive was interacting with the Starsan. Then the other day after brewing I left a bucket with the lid off in the brew room and it turn a slight pink color over night.

Maybe I'll email the guys at starsan.

You left the labels on? Perhaps there was dye on the labels that washed off.
