When I filles my 7 Galln Carbot with it, it bubbles like MAD!!! About half way through the filling process, I had soapy bubbles coming out the funnel and Carboy. Also, After I empties the Carboy to ready it for the Wort, it still had a bunch of bubbles in it. So, I rinsed the carboy once, but it still has a little bit of bubbles in it. Is this okay? Or will the Star San kill my yeast?
You don't have to fill it all the way up. Just put in 1/2- 1 gallon, slosh it around so everything is coated, dump out the star-san and tip your caboy upside-down to dry a bit. You only need a minute or so of contact time and this is easily achieved while the carboy is drying. Easy-peasy. Cheers.
