Have used this to sterilize my fermenter for years with no adverse results.. Suggest a rinse with few pints of boiled/cooled water to remove any residual Iodophors though.

Does iodophor work well with CIP ball? Seems ideal because of cool water and low foam, but is it ok to let run for 20+ minutes of contact?

This is an RV and camper lovers dream
I'm not sure how caustic this stuff is or carcinogenic but I must say it works like a charm. To me, it doesn't seem that bad because I think it's iodine-based. We used to get iodine all over the place when I was a kid. We got iodine smeared on our cuts, iodine was more prevalent in our foods. But not anymore. So I don't mind using the stuff. I think I can sanitize my tanks in 2 minutes and all I have to do is pour it in. Shoot, 2 minutes goes by so usually sits in there a lot longer before I can even flush it back out. But see I'm using this to sanitize fresh water tanks and water lines in my camper. It's perfect for that. I don't Brew my own beer or anything so I've never tried it in that context. But if you love to go camping and you have a hard time with bleaching out your water lines and freshwater tank, just try this stuff. It's easy as pie.

Works as Advertised
This is a less expensive alternative to Star San. Unlike Star San, it is not a contact killer of bacteria, it needs a few minutes of contact to be effective.

Easy sanitizing, won’t leave your carboy full of foam. Check your starch conversion as well with just a drop.

Better than starsan!
Yes it smell funny, and yes it will slightly discolor vinyl tubing (although it does not stain my plastic fermentor), but this stuff kills what you want dead. I had an airlock filled with starsan that the krausen bubbled into. I pitched that starsan/krausen liquid from the airlock into an equal amount of mild table sugar water mix that I boiled, and within 12 hours this new solution was fermenting. That tells me that starsan is not a very effective yeast killing agent, and online brewing forums seem to support the idea that iodophor is more effective at killing yeasts and souring bugs like lacto and pedio, something starsan is known to struggle with.
