STAR SAN HB is a blend of phosphoric acid and dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid. This blend provides a unique synergistic system that is unaffected by excessive organic soils. STAR SAN HB is also a self-foaming acid anionic detergent. It can be applied through a foamer to produce self-adhering foam or manual application with sponge, sprayer, or just slosh it on! Star San is a self-foaming acid sanitizer ideal for brewing, dairy and other food and beverage equipment.
Don’t fear the foam! When used as directed at under 300ppm, Star San is a perfectly safe no-rinse sanitizer and disenfectant and even if there is still some foam evident it apparently will not hurt a thing. It does not give any kind of off flavor or aroma to your brew. Go ahead, taste it. Nothing. Any product remaining degrades into an excellent yeast nutrient!
Cleaning with STAR SAN HB on a daily basis will leave equipment in an acid condition that will eliminate water spotting, mineral build-up, and corrosion. It is not recommended to use STAR SAN HB on soft metals because of the acid nature of this product.
