Default Sanitation times

Hello- wondering how long you should sanitize your equipment for. For example gathering a quick sample from the wine thief, test jar & hydrometer.

Thanks

I just spray the items with some StarSan and give them about a minute

Agreed...2 mins is the stated time I think, but the creator says you get kill in 30 seconds. Sometimes I don't even wait that long.

I use 12.5 ppm iodine in cold water, soak stuff for at least 2-3 minutes. I think the bottle might say five minutes...

Thanks all for this. I didn't wait very long either because the wife was actually interested in the art.

Thanks
