I've used this to sanitize the equipment and bottles for every batch I've brewed (6 so far) and I haven't had an infected batch yet. I haven't noticed any iodine flavor in the resulting beer. I sanitize and air dry everything the beer might touch after the initial boil.
Iodine sanitizer is the best fastest and reliable product on the market.
I use this for quick spray downs of equipment just before use and while I'm working with equipment. I sanitize my kegs with it before kegging. It's great. No off flavors in my beer, ever.
Didn’t realize I had ordered such a large bottle. Should last a life time.
You have to soak for several minutes to sanitize. I’m new to brewing but I think other brands are more of a “contact” sanitizer and can be stored in a spray bottle for long term use. The iodine evaporates and has to be made every use essentially.
