Default How long in sterilising fluid?

Hi

I've got all my bottles in sterilising fluid in the bathtub. I just did a reading and my beer needs another day or two. How long is it ok to leave bottles in the sterilising fluid?

Glass? More or less indefinitely, I suppose....unless someone needs to take a shower.

Assuming you mean sanitiser, there's no reason you can't leave your bottles to soak for a few days. There's no real benefit to it, but no harm. Anything plastic will begin to be adversely affected by acid sanitisers after a relatively short period.

Yeah it's glass bottles in a no rinse sanitising solution .....I jumped the gun by mixing the solution before doing a hydrometer reading. It should be ready in a few days
