I heard some horror stories from some people with sanitizing issues, and now I am paranoid I didn't sanitize my bottles well enough on my first batch. I just bottled last week, and here is what I did:
Had old bottles, mostly summit and new belgium. Soaked them in oxyclean solution for about a week to get labels off. They were empty when they went into the solution, and I shook a bunch of oxy clean through the bottles the day they went in and after a week when i removed labels and rinsed them out. I didn't use a brush, just shook a lot with solution in the bottle.
Then I air dried the bottles on a rack, and sanitized them with starsan solution right before filling.
I would think that would be ok, but I am being paranoid. Should I be?
also wondering what people do to clean/sanitize their racking cane and tube. I rinsed with hot water and oxy clean right after using, and then re-rinsed with hot water, oxy clean, and star san before using the second time. Anything better than just running cleaner/solution through the tube?
