i am new here today, and this site is AMAZING !!! HERE IS AN IDEA FOR YOU...i am a beer brewer by hobby, and what i have always used is an iodine based sanitizer !! called B.E.S.T. for brewing equipment sanitizing treatment.a low foaming iodophor for sanitizing in-line beer botting, soft drink bottling, milk bottling and food canning industries.

the active ingrediant is iodine at 1.6 %.

1 oz. of BEST in ten gallons of water gives you a titratable iodine solution at 12.5 ppm,
1 oz. to 5 g. h20 gives 25 ppm, ect.......this is the strength that i have uesd, and i have never had any contams with my brewing....and as i understand it....fresh wort (freshly made beer is VERY sweet, before fermentation ) is about as friendly a place for contam's to be in !!!!!! you can let your surfaces air dry, and there is no residue. the iodine escapes into the atmosphere.you should be able to find this at any home brew supply shop

negative, WILL NOT WORK FOR AIR BORN CONTAMS IN THE AIR.

" ONLY ON SURFACES " AND EQUIPMENT " that will come in contact with your beer wort/ mycelium.
much like mushroom work, and making beer, "EVERYTHING !!!!!! THAT COMES INTO CONTACT, AND I MEAN EVERYTHING !!!!

ABSOLUTELY MUST BE SANATIZED !!!! I CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. SHOWER, WEAR FRESH CLOTHES. IF YOU CAN LOOK LIKE A DOCTOR IN SURGERY, FACE MASK, HAIR CAP, LATEX GLOVES, ALL THE PREP THAT THEY DO WILL GO FAR IN KEEPING YOUR CONTAM'S DOWN FROM JUST....." YOU !!!" WHAT YOU NEED FOR EVERYTHING ELSE IN THIS WORLDS ENVIROMENT IS A H.E.P.A FILTER SYSTEM...THIS WILL TAKE YOUR AIR DOWN TO 0.3 MICRONS, TOO SMALL FOR ANY ( BUT NOT ABSOLUTELY ALL ) YEAST, FUNGUS, BACTERIA AND ALL THE REST. THIS IS THE " BEST THAT YOUR CAN STRIVE FOR, FOR AIR BORN CONTAMS.
BEST OF LUCK TO YOU !!!
