All this talk about StarSan, and one question never got addressed. I made a batch of StarSan with my good quality tap water and it went cloudy within 30 minutes. After a week, it was very cloudy, but still had a PH of 2.0 . John said it had to be clear as well. Why?

It is cloudy because of the alkalinity of the water. The starsan phosphoric acid drops the PH but the water hardness can remain.

I think John was just saying that his water was hard and the starsan was confirming that with the cloudiness.
