Chemical resistant plastic is a good thing when dealing with Sar San. ¬†I used to store diluted Star San in a distilled water gallon jug. ¬†When it eventually ate through the plastic and leaked all over… I realized that was a bad idea.¬† I went looking for a chemical resistant bottle and found this one.

Note: The bottle I reviewed was purchased in 2015.¬† As of this update, I’m still using that same bottle.¬† Chemical resistance is a great thing.¬† Note that markings on the bottle may have changed since I purchased mine.

This is a spray bottle. ¬†This isn’t an automated electric brew house. ¬†It’s a simple uni-tasker. ¬†My main concern was whether it would hold up over time.

I purchased this spray bottle in January 2015. ¬†Since then it has been continually been filled with and used for Star San. ¬†As of this update (8/2018) it continues to work great. ¬†No leaks. ¬†The bottle and sprayer continue to function like new. ¬†It’s a great spray bottle that I use regularly.

Feedback from HBF Reader Da Kine: “This is a great product. I had some bottles from Ace Hardware that lasted maybe 2 brews. Based on HBF’s hands-on review, I got some of these and they’ve lasted great over dozens of brews.”

    I use this same bottle, my issue is that the pickup tube does not extend fully to the bottom and is not curved to the side as most spray bottles are. This design flaw causes two issues: First the unit will not spray all of it’s contents, leaving a few ounces in the bottle. Second, if the bottle is tilted to the side the pickup tube is inevitably exposed and the unit will not spray at all. Otherwise it’s a great spray bottle for Star-San or other sanitizing products and it’s strengths outweigh the weaknesses noted above.

      Guess I haven’t let it get low enough to where I’ve had that issue. I think it sprays pretty well when tilted within reason. It, of course, does not spray upside down. I purchased several sprayers that were supposed to work upside down – like these – great idea, but really poor execution. They work nearly equally poorly upside down and right side up.
