Default Did I screw this up?

I just started fermenting my first batch and glanced back at the instructions on the jar of Easy Clean no rinse cleanser. I discovered the solution I made was potentially as low as 20% of the intended concentration.

I'm sure it will be fine. We've all done things to screw up our beer and 99% of time, it turns out fine. You have to try pretty hard to get an actual infection.

It is probably fine, but do yourself a favor and get some StarSan for next time.

There are daredevils who just clean their stuff and don't use sanitizer and they still manage to make beer. Most of us prefer to stack the odds in our favor by using it, but even a 20% solution is probably better than nothing.
