Greetings...

A local brew shop carries a bag of white crystalline powder that is
simply labeled "Sterilizing Solution Mix". Supposedly, you just mix
a few teaspoons per gallon of water, and you can sterilize anything
instantly. We tried this stuff with our last batch, which has just
passed the bottling stage. The wort tasted normal at this point, so
there doesn't seem to be any contamination yet.

Does anyone have any experience with this stuff, or know what it
might be? We've been using bleach and water up until now, but that
required soaking for a day or more for proper sterilization. Other
than speed, what are the advantages/disadvantages of the two?
