I've made beer and wine for years, and this sanitizer quickly made it to the top of my list. It's easy to use, removes the risk of bleach or boiling water spills, and it's food safe. In all the years I brewed and made wine, I never had a bad batch after using this sanitizer. We're now turning our attention to making cheese, and I already know that there is no other option for me than Star San.
So happy I found this on the New England Cheese Making Supply site. Was using bleach and/or boiling, but this is much more convenient and less toxic than bleach. There is no problem with residual as there would be with bleach. Won’t be without it now!
No bad bugs in my cheese so far! Let's hope my luck holds. As much as you may want to, do NOT rinse after sanitizing.
Great product. Very easy to use. Good bang for your buck.
I don’t have a dish washer so I have to sanitize everything before I make cheese. This is easy and quick. Since using it my cheese making has been easier than before.
