BTF Iodophor Sanitizer

BTF Iodophor Sanitizer

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Homebrewers know that proper sanitation techniques are critical for creating high quality homemade beverages. BTF Iodophor, an iodine based sanitizer, is a powerful, broad spectrum antimicrobial product that kills a wide range of bugs that are waiting to infect your fermentation. Unlike acid based sanitizers, BTF Iodophor reliably kills yeast, mold, fungus, bacteria, viruses and blood borne pathogens. 

BTF Iodophor offers a low cost per use, is gentler on your hands than other sanitizers, and is very low foaming. If used in the correct dilution (very important) it is a no-rinse sanitizer. It is safe to use on all your brewing equipment such as buckets, kegs, tanks, fermenters, bottles, etc. Even if you frequently use a sanitizer, it’s a good idea to have multiple sanitizers on hand especially when working with wild yeasts and bacteria or as a “change of pace” sanitizer.

Directions for 12.5 PPM Brewing Sanitizer Solution:

  • To Make 1.5 Gallons of sanitizer: Mix 1 tsp BTF Iodophor into 1 ½ gallons cool water
  • To Make 5 Gallons of Sanitizer: Mix ½ oz (1 Tablespoon) BTF Iodophor into 5 gallons cool water
  • Allow solution to contact surface for 2 minutes, then air dry.

Iodophor Features:

  • Kills yeast, mold, fungus, gram positive bacteria, gram negative bacteria, spore forming bacteria, viruses and blood borne pathogens
  • Use at a rate of 1/2 oz of BTF per 5 gallons
  • Low foaming
  • No-rinse at 12.5 PPM dilution (see above)
  • Non-corrosive and gentle on skin and hands

I was looking for a sanitizer. Instead I found this website with a kind humanitarian leadership. The product is great, and at a fair price, but I can't pass on a Compassionate leader.

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?

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.

Iodophor, Changed Formula?
I've used this product for over 8 years with complete success. Unfortunately, when I opened a recently purchased batch, the smell was stronger than usual. Sure enough, after using it to sanitize my bottles, the beer smells like Iodophor two weeks later. Not happy! Before filling, I allowed the bottles to drain for about 30 minutes, so they were still somewhat wet when I filled them. I've been doing it this way all along, but this time I got a different result. I'll try the beer again in a week or so to see if the smell has diminished. If not, I'll have to dump it.

I’m a big fan of this product and have used it exclusively for years. Doesn’t require a large amount each use and you don’t need to rinse off your items after using.
