Default Sanitizing with Iodophor

I have a 5 gallon cornelius keg and this is the first time I am going to use it. Can someone suggest how much iodophor to use with how much water to sanitize? I don't want to use too much or too little. Thank you!

The most recent dillution rate from the FDA that I recall for iodophor s 1TBS/5 gallons of water.

I put a lot of good info and tips of effectively using sanitizers in here. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/sani...uestion-54932/

There is a great podcast about and other tips about using iodophors in there.

Mixing instructions should be printed right on the bottle.

+1 to what Revvy said. you could also do about 1 teaspoon and about a gallon and half of water in the corny and shake it up to coat.

Yup...I mention in the sanitizer question thread that you don't really need ot mix up the whole five gallons of sanitizer...with no-rinses, you just need enough to wet the surfaces by slashing and swirling.
