Learned my lesson
« on: May 24, 2013, 09:16:18 PM »
Two weeks ago when I was cleaning up from brewing, I knew I would be brewing again today so I left my silicone hoses in Starsan for the two weeks.  Bad choice.  They are now all cloudy, blotchy, and apparently the elasticity has been compromised.  One of the ends of tubing split where I had stretched it over a stainless fitting.

So go to school on me and don't do this to your hoses.

Same thing happened with me after being lazy and left my tubes soaking in oxi-clean for ~2days. They got cloudy, but actually eventually went away. Didn't have the same elasticity issues, though. Good to know!

Been there and got the t-shirt! One of those cases where more is not better.
