I recently sent an E-mail to FiveStar Chemicals asking if Star San was OK to use in wine making.
The exact quote form Jon Herskovits of FiveStar is "It is great for wine makers"
That is good news for us and I plan on changing my sanitation practices.

I e-mailed Jon a question last week and got a reply within two hours. I really appreciate that kind of support when I buy a product.

I've been using it for several years and it's my favorite also. I make beer to and I I like being able to use the same type of sanitizer for everything.
