Easy brew, good taste
Very easy brew. Tasted a bite lighter than expected, but very good overall.

No infections
I alternate this with Star San, just to make sure I kill everything. It doesn't foam like Star San and it won't stain if you diluete it according to the "no rinse" directions.

Kills everything
I make a 1 gallon solution and clean everything, not just my better bottles and buckets. Just fill and shake and pour out. 2 minutes later it's ready to use. I use both this and Star San, just to alternate in case there is something that one doesn't kill, the other one will.

Works well
If you make it right it wont stain. Use three mili-liters per gallon. I use a dropper to get that little amount and mix it up, and use it that day, then spill it out. I give it 2 minutes contact time, then empty with no rinsing.

Mix it correctly
I got a dropper and add 3 ml to 1 gallon to get a good sanitizer that I discard after using. At that dilution it doesn't stain, and it sanitizes with a minute of contact._x000D_It can work with hard water, which affects star san.

Good sanitizer
If you mix it correctly it wont stain your equipment. But if you use too much, which is easy because all you need is 1/10 of an ounce which is hard to measure, it will stain. Its an economical and effective sanitizer.

Good change of pace
I like to use Iodine sometimes, to kill off things that Star San doesn't. I've had success killing mold and stray yeast with it. If you measure properly (it takes a very small amount) it wont stain and doesn't require rinsing.

Great Sanitizer
I have used a few products to sanitize and have found the IO Star to be the best. Some sanitizers you have to worry about it foaming if you work too fast. This doesn't foam and only needs a one minute contact time. Great product and I recommend it to all my fellow brewers.

Still prefer StarSan
I tried this and StarSan and while both seem to work (no infections either way), I prefer Star San because of the IO Star staining issue. This is less expensive so it does have its advantages.

Can stain
IO star works well but if you aren't careful it can stain. So I've gone back to using Star San and PBW. I still use the IO star on occasion and it works well.
