IO Star is an Iodine based sanitizer designed for easy sanitation of all brewing and bottling equipment, draft system equipment and bottles. To create the solution, dilute 1 oz of IO Star per 5 – gallons of cool water.
Following boiling and chilling operations, anything touching wort should touch the solution of IO Star and water first! 1 minute following point of contact, equipment will be sanitized. Do not rinse as rinsing will re-introduce bacteria to the surfaces of the equipment.
Eventually, the solution of IO Star and water will lose the amber color, signaling a reduction in effectiveness. For the best outcomes, create a new batch of IO Star as needed to achieve proper sanitation during each brewing operation. Do not store and reuse the IO Star solution.
