Hi
Unfortunately i live in europe and haven't got access to the seemingly amazing Star San so i am looking for an alternative

Have anybody got experience with Chemipro san or Chemipro Acid, and can these work as potential substitutes for star san?

Cheers

The ingredients are very similar to Star San, and so I would use it the same.

I would suggest using 15 mL per 10 L water. Use RO purified or distilled water if you have it available.

Allow it to drain off, but don't rinse. For it to work, it needs maybe 1-2 minutes of contact time and the surface needs to be clean.
It will foam, and that's nothing to worry about.

StarSan/ChemproSan does not need to dry. It does require a minimum contact time or wet time to be effective, it states this on the label.

From memory, I thought it was 1min, but please reference the label. I routinely work with products whose wer times range from 1-10min. I could easily be remembering incorrectly.
