Default Steam Cleaner Sanitisation

Has anyone ever used the handheld steam cleaners to sanitise bottles before bottling? If so what were the successes

that "MAY" work, though i think it would take quite a long time and wouldn't be very practical overall.. the best way i've found is just to use one of these with some starsan.. a bottle of starsan will last a decade if you use distilled water.. after i have a beer i usually rinse it out right away and stick it on my counter.. once the counter gets a little busy i'll take them to the basement to sit on my bottle tree.. just a quick rinse again and a handful of shots from the Vinator with starsan before use and you're good to go..

once i started sanitizing this way i'll never go back to another way as it is quite simple..


~ A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

I agree that a steam cleaner would be too much trouble and possibly dangerous. I too use the Vinator and Starsan.
