Are there any sanitizers I can buy at a grocery store? I need to sanatize my keg and lines tonight and I'm out of c-brite.

you can do an ounce of plain chlorine bleach with plain water. or 1 tablespoon of iodine to 5 gallons of water.
Primary 1: pale ale
Primary 2: blondie

Titratable Iodine. Providone Iodine at 9-12% is available at any drugstore or in the pharmacy section of most grocery stores. At 10% you would dillute it 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons of water for a nor rinse solution.
