So, a delicious batch of Winter Warmer. At least, so it seemed when we tasted a sample during bottling.
Last night, just a week later, we opened a bomber and it REEKED of iodine. It’s difficult not to suspect “no-rinse” Iodophor is responsible, though I usually give individual bottles a quick rinse after immersing in Iodophor for awhile…
We’re hoping this problem is limited to one bottle, but haven’t experienced this before. And dang, we really wanted to give this as gifts, but now…
My questions are:
Have others experienced this?
Any hope the iodine smell will go away with more bottle conditioning?
Any suggestions for damage control?
(We’re using Star-San next time!)
