Revvy...You're a master.
I use the dishwasher to sanitize, then bottle right on the open door of the dishwasher taking bottles out as necessary. Your 2 little tricks there...especially the dip tube for the bucket....pure genius.

For Kegerator, I suggest the venerable Sanyo 9412. But, it seems it is no longer being carried by many stores, so if one is too hard to find, maybe try the Oster 5.0 CF model. This size of fridge is about the smallest you can do with standard 5Gal. corneys. I've got a bigger fridge fo rme, but I wanted to be able to stuff more bottles of beer and pop and have a freezer for ice and ice cream (My kegerator is in my hobby room, right behind my computer, so I can enjoy all of my luscious beer and ice cream while playing World of Warcraft...)

I bottle over the open dishwasher, that's the greatest. I'll be stealing the idea of the bottling wand and the siphon drain for my next bottling, those are some great tips.

The other day I bottled mead and put the bottling bucket on the ale pail I had just emptied, so I was able to actually sit at the table comfortably and not the floor.....The only trouble is that when bottling on the floor there's plenty of room all around me to spread out all the stuff I need within arms reach. Not so much with sitting at the table....It was fine for the dozen or so 20 ouncers I was bottling the mead in, but for 2 cases of beer, it may be less convenient for me....

(That's one of the things you, N00bs out there in lurk land, your brewing PROCESS is just as important, maybe more so, then whether you brew all grain, extract, bottle, keg, or dance the jig naked while taking hydro-readings, and you keep making new adjustments, and teaking it, until you get it dialed in to what works for you and makes even the most tedious aspects, like bottling pleasurable.)
