I don't plan to use it all the time but I'll certainly be using it on this next batch.  I figure if I just use it every few batches on my cold side equipment it will get what starsan might miss.  I actually plan on running it through my fermentor and kegs and then pushing starsan through after to rinse everything out.  bad idea?  should I do something different?  anything a first time iodophore user needs to know?

I've gone to using iodophor most of the time.  I keep some StarSan in a spray bottle for small or last minute sanitizing.  I don't understand why you'd want to rinse with StarSan when iodophor is no rinse.

I like to switch between the two.  Keep any potential crazy's on their toes :)

part of it is that I tend to sanitize my kegs weeks before I put beer in them.  any issue doing this with iodophore?

Not as far as I know, but I'll check with my sources.  Do you leave the iodophor in them, or wet them down and drain it out?

I would think if you drained out the iodophore and sealed the corny = very good to go.  The stuff evaporates/dries pdq.

I agree with PopTop.  You're good.

Cool, in that case I'll just use iodophore this time.

is there any issue with minor contact between starsan and iodophore?  I'll probably still use a spray bottle of starsan and I like to dunk some keg components in starsan while reassembling but I plan to use iodophore in the keg, push through the dip tube, etc.

I haven't experienced any problems

is this the typical color when properly diluted?  I did about 7.4mL in 2.5 gallons.

well hopefully I didn't mix it too strong.  I also just realized something stupid I did.  I put the yeast in the starter vessel before the wort so hopefully the iodophore residue didn't kill/maim my yeast .  ugh.

I added probably 3/4 of the water, put in the iodophor and then topped it off.

so that yeast starter took off just fine by the way.  signs of life within about 6 hours.  seems to be going just like all of my other 007 starters have in the past.
