An essential part of any home winery, a sanitizer will kill any wild bacteria present on your fruit processing and fermenting equipment ensuring that only the yeast you pitch are doing their work in your wine. Proper sanitation will virtually eliminate wild yeast and bacterial infections. All of our sanitizers are contact sanitizers requiring as little as 60 seconds of contact to sanitize.

IO Star Sanitizer
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.

Sulfur Sticks – Pac..
Sulfur Sticks – Pac..$13.99
Sulfur Sticks are used by some winemakers to treat oak barrels. The stick is suspended in the barrel and burned before the barrel is put away for storage. In general, the coopers we are in contact with recommend 1/3 to 1/2 of a stick, per 60 gallon barrel. As all Sulfur sticks may not be created equal, this equates to 1″ by 2″ – 3″ per 60 gallon barrel.
