I've watched a couple of videos about sanitizing kegs. After cleaning, they show rinsing and then putting StarSan in the keg.. pressurizing and running thru the serving line and then storing like that until ready to fill again.

Is there any issue with doing that with Iodophor? I don't know if there is a long term compatibility issue with the two. I highly doubt it.. but, thought.. better safe than sorry...

Thanks

I used iodophor on stainless long before starsan.

no long term problems switching between the two.

Used it for years with no problem. You don't need to pressurize it. Just turn it upside down and compress the valve with a small screwdriver until the sanitizer shoots out. It will hold the sanitizer in the dip tube until you release it.
