Iodophor Sanitizer
    #2119176 - 11/18/03 09:14 AM (13 years, 22 days ago)

I use this product for brewing beer.
It is a food sanitizer that kills all types of bacteria.
It is a rinse free sanitizer, which means no drying. It is used in the food industy.
All you do is submerge anything in the solution for one minute, and you are sanitized. It seems to me that brewing beer is a lot like growing mushrooms, where cleanliness is key and common molds and bacteria can get in there and ruin everything. On my friends batch, he sanitized his jars first within Iodophor solution as a precaution.
This is the only product used in beer making to keep everyting clean and sanitized, not sterilized. Can someone answer the question whether sanitizing the jars, instead of cooking them to death may be all thats needed to avoid contamination?

You need to sterilize the substrate, too, not just the jars, and I wouldn't put iodine products in the actual substrate. You'll still need to pressure cook the substrate.
