Keeping your equipment clean and sanitary is the first step toward brewing a fantastic beer, but the number of products to choose from can make your head spin. That’s why we put together a basic cleaning and sanitizing kit to set novice brewers on the path to success.

Star San
Star San is an acid based sanitizer that is quick, odorless, tasteless and safe for most materials except softer metals. Use of 1 oz per 5 gallons of water and a contact time of 1 minute makes Star San very economical and convenient.

Craft Meister Alkaline Brewery Wash
Does your cleaner power through dirt in cold water? Craft Meister Alkaline Brewery Wash does! This versatile and powerful brewery cleaner dissolves quickly and cleans rapidly in cold water in addition to hot water. Ideal for overnight soaking as the solution does not lose effectiveness over time like oxygen based cleaners such as Oxi Clean. Craft Meister Alkaline Brewery Wash will not leave a white chalky film on your equipment like most oxygen based cleaners and rinses away with ease.

Spray Bottle
A bucket full of sanitizer is great for soaking equipment, but not every job requires that much solution. This 8 oz Sanitizing Spray Bottle is the answer! Great for a quick spray on hands, fermenter valves, sample takers, etc. either before or immediately after use. Add 1/2 tsp (2 ml) of Star San with the plastic syringe and fill with water. Sanitizer will last up to 1 week before it is ineffective.

Plastic Syringe
The syringe is used to easily measure out 2 ml of Star San for the spray bottle.

Kit Includes:

  • Star San – 16 oz (CL26E)
  • Alkaline Brewery Wash – 1 lb (CL41A)
  • Plastic Syringe – 10 ml (MT118)
  • Spray Bottle – 8 oz (CE96)

 

This setup is ready to use with the “Spray Bottle Method” that we have advocated for years.  Beyond including Star San and a Homebrew Cleaner, this kit includes a syringe and spray bottle.  We first outlined this technique and use of a syringe to measure Star San years ago in our Star San Tips and Tricks post.  It’s nice to see this technique now carrying all the way through to retailers offerings!

My Favorite Size of Star San & Why

Star San – via Amazon

Star San Acid Sanitizer.  8 oz size.  No rinse when mixed properly.  Container includes built in measure.


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Self-foaming acid sanitizer ideal for brewing, dairy and other food and beverage equipment
  • Extremely effective bactericide and fungicide and is not affected by excessive organic soils
  • Reduces water spotting and can be used without rinsing under the proper concentrations
  • Volume: 8 fluid ounces

Star San is my sanitizer of choice.  It is effective, food safe and no-rinse.  It is also very cost effective if you use the spray bottle method.

My Favorite Size and Why: Considering the shelf life of Star San concentrate is 1 to 2 years, If you’re using the Spray Bottle Method [See: Tip: Star San Tips, Tricks and Guidelines – Using Star San In a Spray Bottle], I generally recommend purchasing the 8 ounce size.  8 ounces of concentrate yields about 39 gallons of mixed solution.  The spray bottle method is very efficient, so you don’t end up using much sanitizer per batch.  Let’s say you use 1/4 gallon (which I personally think is high) for each batch, the 8 ounces size yields enough mixed solution for around 157 batches.  That figures to about 13 batches per month over a 1 year period.  If you use 1/8 gallon (which I think is more realistic) that equates to about 26 batches per month over a 1 year period.  The larger 16 and 32 ounces sizes may be a lower cost per ounce, but if you’re unable to use it within Star San’s shelf life, you’ll just be throwing sanitizer away or using less effective past date sanitizer.  Getting a smaller bottle more often means your Star San is fresher.
