Hi guys, I need some help, my wife accidentally moved a container of about 2 cups of sanitizing solution (concentrate mixed with appropriate amount of water) to a shelf higher than my conical fermenter. I just noticed the entire container of solution that my exhaust hose was resting in is now empty. I know that means it funneled into the fermenter. I have 10 gallons of an IPA fermenting in this batch. Is this Batch now a lost cause and could it make people sick if they drink it? Should I dump it?

Ya, if anything, it may make it a little more tart since its a phosphoric acid sanitizer, but at diluted strength its totally non toxic.

The diluted Star San solution itself isn't tart, so it won't make the beer tart.
