Cleaning & Sanitizing

Sanitation, sanitation, sanitation! Nothing ruins a homebrewer’s day faster than an infected batch of beer. Help prevent bottle bombs and soured beers by ensuring that all of your brewing equipment is clean and sanitized. Making sure anything that will touch your beer is properly sanitized will kill the wild yeasts and bacteria just begging to take up residence in your beer. Cleansers will keep your equipment surfaces clean, eliminating residues and hiding places for bacteria, but a sanitizer is necessary to kill off those hungry yeasts and bacteria, so be sure you’re using both!

    FastRack Beer Bottle Dryi..

    $32.99

    As homebrewers, we understand that empty bottles are the temples which once housed a carefully crafted batch of brew and will continue to do so for many beers to come. While they are waiting to be filled with the next delicious batch of liquid, FastRack gives your bottles the respect they deserve- keeping them safe, clean and dry. And by taking up one third of the space and far less time, FastRack lets you craft more brews from start to finish.

    Because your unfilled bottles deserve to be treated better than empties.

    The FastRack starter setup can accomodate the following bottle types:
    48 (24 per rack) ? Standard Bottles ? 12oz (330ml ? 375ml)
    24 (12 per rack) ? Bomber Bottles ? 22oz (650ml)
    24 (12 per rack) ? Belgian Style Bottles ? 22oz (650ml)

  • Saniclean

    Saniclean

    $11.99$17.99

    SaniClean is the low-foam version of Star San. With a contact time of 2-3 minutes it is not as fast as Star San, but works as well. You also have to use twice as much, 2 oz per 5 gallons, for the same effect. However if you are using a pump it is the right choice. SaniClean is also known as a flavor and odor removal, making it the perfect choice for acid rinsing your dispensing equipment. Made by the same company that makes Star San and PBW and packaged in the same easy to use container as the 32 oz Star San.

  • Star San Sanitizer

    Star San Sanitizer

    $7.99$23.99

    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.

    As a high foamer, Star San’s foaming action insures coverage and contact time in larger vessels and better penetration into nooks and crannys. Any foam that is left over in your carboy or keg will not harm your beer or you, and is perfectly safe and non-toxic, nor will it impart any flavors or odors. If you plan on making some up for spray application it is best to use distilled or RO water to maximize the life of the unused portion (minerals in tap water reduce the shelf life of Star San once in solution). If a lower foaming alternative is preferred, for bottling or multiple batches, check out Saniclean.
