Get some buckets. Rinse the bottles. Get some Oxiclean. Put in bucket with hot water (as hot as you can stand putting your hands in). Put bottles in bucket fully submerged and let soak overnight. The result is bottles that are clean and just need rinsed (a couple times). Then put rinsed bottles in another bucket with Star San solution.

The wife was looking for a flashlight. I told her there was one on top of the beer fridge. Her reply..."which one?!?!?"

That's what I've been doing without problems, but for some reason this time I'm getting a bunch of bottles with a cloudy ring at the bottom of the bottle. It's driving me crazy.

You know when you're a homebrewer when your mind is blown by the simple yet genius idea to put a bottle brush on a drill.

Also, when you check Craigslist everyday for the elusive Sanyo 4912.

I use a muck bucket,it will hold 60 bottles,then use a double blast bottle washer,with it I've only had to rinse once.

When you are making chili for today's cookoff, and decide to write down a detailed time schedule for hot pepper addition, you know, so you have the perfect balance of hot and flavor. Then you start your boil timer to make sure you make your hot pepper additions at the correct time.

Brewing really is taking over my life.

When you're stirring your coffee and think, "Hey! Whirlpool. Time to add my cream addition."

When you pour out the bottles, make sure you slowly pour it out rather than dumping upside down. I realized rings when I was brewing a week or two ago and that worked for me

You know you're a home brewer when you've got 3 bathrooms in your house and your swmbo share one and you and your wife share one. Gotta have a beer lab!

How'd you work that one out? The swmbo and the wife, not the private bathroom.
