I bottled my Barleywine this weekend. I had a handful of bottle caps that I had left in some StarSan in a bowl. The starsan had turned cloudy, so I removed the bottle caps and rinsed them in a Mason Jar with scalding hot water from my "always hot" tap. I then put them in another clean bowl with Starsan in it for a while before I bottled (10 minutes or so).

Anyway, I am noticing that my bottlecaps that I used to bottle have like a powdery substance on them. It appears to be some type of reaction to having left them in the cloudy StarSan.

Am I okay?
