    Forgot To Empty Starsan

    So, I filled a keg that still had about 500ml of starsan in it. I forgot to empty it before filling. Any issues with just drinking it? I figure it's a no rinse so a little can't be bad, but this is 500ml in 19L, still fairly diluted but not sure if it's a wise thing to tap it. Actually, it...

    Robinox Vs Trenton

Trenton are a bit cheaper, but they look to be the same, I found that the Trenton ones are 4mm thick, are the Robinox ones a bit thicker? Anything not so good...
