Effective, but be careful. Iodine can stain a lot of things. I learned the hard way.

Great fast sanatizer, but watch out if you soak non stainless or brass parts!
My counter pressure bottle filler has non-stainless steel handles on the valves. If you soak these non-stainless parts in the IO overnight, the handles get a black mold looking sludge on them! Not sure how this happens, but anyway, do not soak extended times, "regular" metal parts in this!

Great stuff!
With a frequent and heavy brew schedule, it took me almost two years to use up one of these jugs! I tried a number of different sanitizers before settling on IO Star - each has their own advantages and shortcomings. Pluses: No rinse; doesn't attack flesh wounds (like some other iodine and chemical sanitizers will, quite painfully); does a great job; works for "iodine test" for mash conversion. Cons: Takes TWO WHOLE MINUTES of contact time to be sanitized (wow, what a painful wait!); loses effect after time (don't use in airlocks or blowoff jugs and expect it to do much in a couple of days).

Best economical sanitation solution out there
I've used this sanitizer since day one of my brewing adventures. This sanitzer works as advertised and is a cinch to use. Just measure out the amount in the convenient integrated measuring cup and viola. This sanitizer is best for carboys (as opposed to starsan) because it does not make everything slippery like dish soap. When I used starsan on the carboy, the plastic stopper would not stay on, it kept on popping off because of the soapy water caused by starsan.

Although it takes longer to work, it is great for everything including bottle sanitation..especially if you fear the foam!
