Default Hope I like iodine in my beer.

Okay, so I'm making a honey blonde ale. All is good, I hit over target gravity but that's okay, I pour 2.5 gallons of iodophor solution into the fermenter to sanitize it, and while it's chilling I stretch a paint strainer over the bucket to strain out the hops. I pour the cold wort in, then see the bucket is filling up way quicker than it should. Yes, I forgot to dump out the iodophor.

Crap. Is there anything I can do here? If I boil it back down from 7.5 gallons to 5, will that cook out the iodine? Or will it still be undrinkable either way? It was a cheap brew at least, but that amount of time sunk into mashing and boiling makes me cry if I have to throw it all away.

I did this exact thing on the only batch I have ever done out of close to 300 batches that had to be dumped. There was always a harshness to it.

I almost never say this but you might just want to cut your losses in time and just dump it and move on.

Some might say otherwise, but I totally go with dontman on this one. Definitely one of the veeeeery few times that you would dump a batch. Have a brew (or 5) and let 'er go.

Well I would toss it, unless of course you have nightmares about growing a humongous goiter that turns into another head and then eats the rest of your body.

I took the advice and threw in the towel: after bringing it to a boil again then cooling it, still smelled like iodine. So I'll just be more careful in the future and maybe make up a quick extract batch this week or something to take its place if I get a chance.

Poor beer never had a chance!! Sorry to hear about the misfortune. You could have named it IBA.....Iodine Blonde Ale!

That'll teach ya for using more sanitizer than necessary. Then again, it probably wouldn't have been much better with only a gallon of iodaphor in there.

Sorry it's lost.

Iodine is a no rinse cleaner and you only need a couple of litres at the most for a carboy.

Iodine is a poison if you drink to much,

Symptoms

Outlook (Prognosis)

How well a patient does depends on the amount of poison swallowed and how quickly treatment was received. The faster a patient gets medical help, the better the chance for recovery.
Esophageal stricture is a possible complication. Death is possible, though unlikely.
