StarSan Pump Dispenser

To dispense my StarSan I use a bathroom pump soap dispenser.  8 pumps doles out 1/2oz which is the proper amount for the 2.5 gallons of sanitizer I typically make.  it’s a lot quicker to squirt out 8 pumps instead of squeezing the StarSan bottle to fill the little reservoir.

Sarsaparilla Soda

Made 6 liters (a Tap-A-Draft’s woth) of Rainbow’s “Old Fashioned” Sarsaparilla Soda today after brewing.  I already had the sanitizer mixed up so why not.  I used the ingredient ratios recommended in the instructions and the uncarbonated soda tastes pretty good.  There’s a good vanilla kick alongside a strong spicy, barky sarsaparilla element.
