General Homebrew Discussion / Life of mixed Star San? Newbie
« on: November 29, 2009, 03:46:30 PM »
Hi all!    I'm new here.  Looks like a great place to learn something!
 I'd like to ask if there is a way to tell if a mixed batch of sanitizer is still good?    Iodophor seems to loose it's color after a week or so. I am told that when the color goes, don't trust it.    I have a 16"x22' x 6" tall plactic tub with lid,( about 2 1/2 gallon) that I keep my racking canes, stoppers,hydrometer, etc. in. and mix a batch of Star San to sanitize my fermenter,carboy, kegs, then dump it in the plastic tub and not wanting to waste it, put the lid on, for next weeks brew day. What are your thoughts on this?
Any tips for sanitizers in general? Too bad a little steam boiler isn't practical for home crafters to use for cleaning/sanitizing.....
