Left some keg jumpers in starsan...
« on: August 01, 2011, 05:07:40 AM »
For about two weeks. When I pulled them out they were slippery to the touch, and after "drying" they're now quite sticky. Have I ruined them completely? I thought StarSan was OK with plastic?

It's just the soap from StarSan.  You can rinse them off with water or soak them in some fresh StarSan.
No damage done.
Cheers
Brew on

I did wash them off, and they're still a bit tacky.

Let them sit out for a few weeks.
They will harden again.
And do not do it again  ;)

I've had the same thing happen with the line, and I've found it always stays pretty tacky.  Maybe I just don't wash it well enough.  I just replace the line, and don't do it again.  Until next time I do it. ;)

Wait, this is the connectors or the line?  For connectors I would try soaking them in a variety of things to see if they would come clean.  Maybe vinegar would help take the stuff off?  It's worth a try.  For line, I would just replace it.
