Amazon? You can't get it at a drug store/chemist?

In all honestly, I don't ever do iodine tests. Malts these days convert without issue.

Yep. And the iodine test is unreliable at best. Waste of time.

Skip the iodine test.  Use the braukaiser link.

I wish I had read more threads like this before I bought Iodine and tried to brew with it. Hit your temps and pH and you should be fine. give it enough time: 45-60 minutes or more. Iodine could help you shave some time if conversion is fully complete earlier than that, but there is plenty of stuff to do while waiting for mash time to be complete. As an afterthought, we are online, you can buy my once used bottle of iodine if you really want it 8)

His chart that shows expected SG by mash thickness (Quarts per Pound) is all I have used. I don't even do that anymore
