* Required Fields



Prevent your newly brewed batch from infection by sanitizing the equipment with Star San. This acid-based, non-toxic sanitizer is effective and easy-to-use, with no-rinsing required. Sanitize fermenters, vessels and more without having to wait (like with bleach) and rinse. Foaming action lets you know its working!

  • Works fast, requires only 1-2 minute contact time
  • Foaming action sanitizes larger vessels and gets into nooks, crevices and cracks
  • Odorless and flavorless, will not taint beer or wine
  • No rinsing needed when using recommended dilution
  • Use only one ounce per 5 gallons of water

Note: Any foam that is left over in your carboy or keg will not harm beer or you as it is safe and non-toxic. You can minimize the foaming effect by adding Star San to the vessel after the water has been added, and by siphoning as opposed to pouring the solution between vessels. Allow extra time for draining.

This product is only eligible for ground shipment within the contiguous United States.

Does what it says
star san works great just have to watch out for the foam when mixing. My suggestion is pour the star san into your water then mix gently as to not have all the foam. Also if have an extra fermenting bucket you can save your mixture from the original sanitizing and use when sanitizing equipment to put into the secondary carboy. Spray bottle works really good on items that are difficult to soak

can I use Star San on stainless steel tanks?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, in fact my Ss Chronical fermenter recommends that you passivate it with a strong Star San solution. I use Star San to sanitize fermenter, keg, bottles, hoses, etc. made of any material.
Can you use this on plastic top cork tops? How would you recommend sanitizing black plastic top tasting cork?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is fine to use. It is a no rinse sanitizer. jut use it at the recommended dilution and dry.
Do bottles need to drain and dry after being sanitized with this or can they be filled immeadiately?
Colby F on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We sanitize all of our bottles first, for convenience, and put them on the bottle rack and then start filling as soon as the last bottle is sanitized. We do not leave them to dry before bottling.
What is the shelf life?
Barbara T on Aug 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The concentrate lasts a really long time. Diluted I re-use my Star San and change it out about every 2 months. I keep it in a bottling bucket with a lid so it's ready to go all the time. As long as the pH is good it's ok to continue using.
Is it usable on plastics such as maple sap tanks and lines?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would think this would work well on sap lines and etc. just make sure you RINSE the lines well with plenty of water. It is kinda expensive though if you buy in any quantity. I know a lot of people use isopropyl alcohol (cheap and available at local stores or in volume on net). Plus, If it is not rinsed entirely, it will boil out and not leave any taste in your syrup). I just use hot water. Whatever you use, DONT USE BLEACH! Squirrels love bleach and will chew your lines, buckets etc. and you will be replacing equipment!
Do you work in beverages glass bottlrle' s letter remove
L A on Apr 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Soaking in Star San is one way of removing labels from glass bottles, although a dedicated cleaner like PBW can be more effective.
