homemade bottle washer/sanitizer
 
hello, i am wondering if anyone has built a bottle washer for use with a chemical sanitizer like the one you might find at a u-brew or distributing microbrewery. if so, i would love to find out about online hardware sources where i can find stainless plumbing parts/fittings and an appropriate pump. i have a simple design in mind but i would also welcome ideas or input on setup.
brand new to the forum and brewing(2 years) and i really appreciate a response! thanks, jubaljordan

Well, I haven't seen any designs on here. Most of us just use the vinator.

Its' like only 10 bucks or so. It would probably cost more to make one from scratch.

+1 on the vinator

thanks a ton for the reply with picture! i had heard about it but never saw how it worked. i was thinking more like a 12 at a time with a pump and tub kind of deal, but after looking at some other threads and ideas, i realized that the single hand pump one will take all of 10 minutes per 5 gal. batch and i can have it for next brew day. thanks again- this forum is awesome. i wish i had found it batches ago!
