Star San Sanitizer

Star San Sanitizer

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Star San is an acid based sanitizer that is quick, odorless, tasteless and safe for most materials except softer metals. Use of 1 oz per 5 gallons of water and a contact time of 1 minute makes Star San very economical and convenient.

As a high foamer, Star San's foaming action insures coverage and contact time in larger vessels and better penetration into nooks and crannys. Any foam that is left over in your coffee brewer or other equipment will not harm your coffee or you, and is perfectly safe and non-toxic, nor will it impart any flavors or odors. If you plan on making some up for spray application it is best to use distilled or RO water to maximize the life of the unused portion (minerals in tap water reduce the shelf life of Star San once in solution). If a lower foaming alternative is preferred, for bottling or multiple batches, check out Saniclean.

Shipping Restricted: This product is only eligible for ground shipment within the contiguous 48 states.

Is it ok to use on stainless equipment?
john breithaupt on Mar 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely! That's what it's made for. You can sanitize stainless or plastic brewing equipment and its no rinse. Just make sure you dilute it correctly as per the instructions on the bottle. It does foam quite a bit so if you want the no for version use the five star SaniClean.
What is the shelf life for this product? I bought a 16oz size about 6 years ago and after about 60 brews with it I'm only halfway through the bottle. It seems to still work same as it did on day-one, just wondering.
Robert Nissen on Jul 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should last years. It is an acid based sanitizer. Long shelf life.

Great Product
I have been using Star San for about a year and have had not problems with sanitation. The best features are the ease of use, fast action, and no rinse required. It is very economical for the value you get from it.

Great everyday sanitizer
Great product. Easy to use. Get comfortable with the foam and then you can use even less product as the foam will sanitize also. I only need a quart or half gallon to swirl in a standard 5-7gal fermentor to get all the surfaces coated in foam.
