Starsan into wort

Post by MarkF_2703 » Mon Sep 03, 2018 11:03 am

Its turning out to be not a good week, dropped my fridge temp to 10 deg to start a cold crash, forgot to take the blow off tube out of the starsan solution I have in the blow off bottle, I reckon about 500ml has been sucked into a 23litre batch, could this be an issue?

In other news my motorcycle has developed a fault and the warranty ran out Friday :shock:

Tasting my starsan solution I detected a slightly sour taste. Diluted a further 50 times I doubt I'd detect it amongst beer flavours. With the frothing agent you may have discovered a new ingredient for head retention :!:

Just under a year warranty left on my 2017 NC750X, what's broken?
I brew therefore I ... I .... forget

Cheers for that, I will carry on and keg it, was more worried about the hazard side I think, its the third brew using the same solution, but still clear, or it was.

Monster 1200R, had a sevice last week now smoking on start up and whilst running, a mate had the same symptoms that was a new cylinder head.

I remember seeing a video a few months ago of one of five star staff drinking some diluted star san, but can’t find it on a quick search now. It may have been Charlie Tallie. It was designed to prove how safe it was in our beer.
It is also apparently a major ingredient in Coca-Cola and other Colas.
You could compare the dilution ratio, it may alter the flavour, but is allegedly safe at the standard dilution.

Thanks, I'll try it on the missus first just to be on the safe side :)

Heard a podcast years ago where a guy in US put his beer on 1/3 keg of it and drank it🤢
