Should I fear the bubbles left from the starsan sanitizer? I really don't like the idea of putting my beer in with this stuff. I am really looking for a more organic sanitizer. If anyone could help me out with this ,that would be great..

Seriously...all you people who are 'scared' of star-san really need to listen to the one hour podcast with its inventor. A little education really matters.
I also think the op is confused about organic vs. Inorganic. Star-san is an organic santizer. Its just acid and a phosphorus based surfactatant that breaks down into a nutrient the yeast will eat.
Also, you can drink it and not die/throw up/go to the hospital.
Try that with a cup of iodiphor, bleack, 1-step, etc.
Yep, that's why us Rednecks here in the South keep a big jug of phosphoric acid in the pantry, if we didn't add it to the gallons of sweet tea we drink, we'd be grave yard dead. :cross:i heard if it wasn't for the phosphoric acid in pop we would instantly die from sugar poisoning or some crazy thing liek that..
good thing you don't believe everything you read on the internet....i heard if it wasn't for the phosphoric acid in pop we would instantly die from sugar poisoning or some crazy thing liek that.. anything with bubbles IMO shouldn't be ingested..
In addition to rinsing, it is also good to spit shine the ends of your bottles before capping them. as a matter of fact just rinse with water because that will be sufficient to sanitize your bottles. There's no such thing as bacteria!!! People get sick because they are possessed by the devil!Doctor: sir you have a brain tumor. have you been drinking chemicals
me: ya i drink sanitizing solution
Doctor: why on earth would you do that
me: bunch of guys on the internet told me it was ok and the guy that invented it says its great!!
i usually dilute the foam with a bit of water to get as much as i can out, i don't rinse it all out but i'm not drinking bubbles.. i don't care what anybody tells me..
good thing you don't believe everything you read on the internet....
