Wide tray for soaking in sanitizer
« on: December 26, 2012, 08:03:31 PM »
I thought there were wide (like 36") trays in Home Depot that i could use to soak the longer brewing stuff. But I can't find any. If you know what I'm talking about can you link to Home Depot or Lowes or Amazon for me?  :o

I used to soak everything now I just keep a bottle of distilled water and StarSan handy.  Works like a champ and I haven't ordered StarSan in a LOOOONG time.

One thing I like my autosiphon for is to pump sanitizer through things like my wort chiller and stainless steel racking cane.

Yep, I keep a spray bottle of Star-San to hose down everything that doesn't fit completely in the bucket I store my Star-San in. Works like a charm.

While you're at HD or Lowes, buy a 5 gallon homer bucket and lid.  Use RO water and Star San to make up 4 gallons of StarSan solution and store it in the HD bucket between brew days.  The size and volume makes it easy to quickly sanitize pre-cleaned equipment and corny kegs.

I also use those $5 blue PVC gloves to protect the hands and minimize contamination issues when handling strainers or transfer tubing during kegging. A quick dunk in the homer bucket StarSan solution helps allay any fears of contamination.
