Default Pastuerizing

I have read the stovetop pasteurizing thread and had a DIY project in mind to simplify the reheating of the water. How long should I keep the bottles in the water covered if the water is only 160 deg? I was thinking atleast 10 minutes from everything ive found around the internet but wanted to be perfectly sure.

A technique that worked for me was to fill a bottle of the same size you are pasteurizing with tap water. Let it come up to the same temperature as your cider bottles. Stick a probe thermometer in the "dummy bottle" and put it in the water along with the bottles filled with cider. When the water temp in the "dummy bottle" is 150 +/- you're there. Pull them all out.

Had one explode in my hand trying the technique advocated on the HBT thread.
Flying glass shard whizzed right by my left cheek. Scared the s**t out of me and decided there and then that there had to be a safer way to do this.

Cheers!

Well my thoughts are I have a ball valve on my brewing kettle for when im making beer and an old coffee pot that has since been broken as of the start of this thread. I plumbed the kettle through the water line on the coffee pot to give a continues flow of water to the pump and heating element. With a few crossed wires (and fingers) I managed to get it to work properly and at a stunning 180 degrees continues output. So I will try to use that to maintain the proper pasteurizing temperature without the use of my gas stove.

I will post pictures of how I rigged it up soon.

The dishwasher method seems to be the easiest and safest. Am I wrong?

I put a thermometers in my dishwasher on a rapid wash ( about 39 mins) and it reaches 150. So I pasteurise in that now!
All successful so far

The dishwasher method may depend on what your hot water is set at; 120-140 is common. If your dishwasher isn't adding heat then you may not be able to pasteurize if your hot water tank is set too low. I could be way off though- Blackthorn's obviously gets to temp.
