I bottled a batch of beer yesterday (my first :rockin:), and I put all 144 bottle caps into a 1 gal bucket of StarSan, mixed properly with distilled water. I don't feel like drying the remaining amount and finding a bag for them, but I also don't want them to rust. Since the water is distilled, will they be okay? Or is the acidity of the StarSan bad for the seal?

Short and simple. Yes.

I found a lot of my caps rusted from not drying. I also left a lonely cap in my starsan bucket once and man it was ugly and tainted my entire batch.

Thanks for the advice, I'll dry them off once I get home.
