I'm a bit confused as to which one of the above to use for what.
Have been using Starsan as a sanitiser with no problems but also hear a lot of references to Sodium Percarbonate. Is it only for cleaning or can I sanitise with it too?
Appreciate your comments.
Cheers
David

Yes SP can sanitise but it takes longer say 10mins and only has a life span once mixed of a few hours, Star San takes 30secs to sanitise and lasts for weeks once mixed. SP is a great cleaner and star san isnt a cleaner. SP can be used to sanitise but things need to sit in it for a while. THey both have their uses at different times and for different things. Cheers!

Bottled my Scottish ale and all went very well, washed 2 jars of yeast and that looks good too. Brew day tomorrow just preparing the liquor now. Was a bit worried about doing the yeast thing again but decided to get back on the pony and move forward. :D

Hi Paul, Ive posted a new post topic about Mauribrew yeast but seems to be Lager, Wheat and Engish style. :D

Hi Paul, a quick google tells me that its a bakers yeast. I honestly dont know if its suitable for brewing or what strain. Will try and find out, good question though, cheers. :D

Have you ever used Mauri yeast? Is it like an English or American ale yeast?
