Default Bottle Washer?

Is it really as good as Charlie writes about in his book? This weekend I'm bottling 10g of IPA, and we have a sh*t ton of 12oz bottles we are gonna use. Do you have to still sanitize the bottles if you use the washer that attaches to the sink? It was $9.95 at my LHBS which is about a dollar cheaper than 12 22oz bottles. Thanks in advance.


Fermenting: 12g Elevated Line California Lager
Kegged: Elevated Line Toast IPA, Founder's Breakfast Stout Clone, Elevated Line Blonde, Elevated Line Christmas Molasses Porter
On Deck: Death by Dunkel, Mango Lambic?, Barleywine, Wheat, Cali Lager, Pilsner, Honey Porter, etc., etc...

Yes. You first need to physically clean the bottles till they shine like the sun and then sanitize them. If those bottles have been just sitting around you are going to want to soak them top to bottom in oxyclean and hot water over night, rinse the hell out of them with hot water, then rinse them inside and out using starsan.
