    You need to rinse that one off before using the equipment. The upside of star San is you don't need to rinse before using.

    Star San is actually dirt cheap if you mix it correctly and save it. Literally pennies. I bet in the long run, it's cheaper than what you are linking to.

    10 minutes of contact time and you need to rinse, no thanks
    Bleach is cheaper and I wouldn't use that.
    If you want really cheap, you could use some citric acid and dilute it to proper strength.
    Boiling water will sanitize, but there are some problems with that as well.
    Ahh, Star San.... Cheap and easy.... no rinse... 30 seconds contact time.... save and re-use for a month....etc.
    My .02 cents!
    Cheers
