    For what it's worth, I sanitize all my bottles via the dishwasher. A wash with the sanitize
    setting enabled, and a couple of scoops of oxyclean do it well for me. The oxyclean also
    removes the labels ...

    You have to love a good SWMBO who wants to assist in brewing. Mine is really most interested in
    helping me bottle, as that's the hardest part of my process. I think she does it so that she
    gets the "B...

    (from a post I made a while back, nearly a year ago, as I look at the date)Ok, this bashing of
    proper screw on growlers has got to stop. I use them regularly (1-2 for each brew, more if I

    My 2nd year Galenas are budded out nicely. I can't wait to make my first brew with them.The 2nd
    year Willamettes grew to about 10ft, but no cones. It was a wee little rhizome when it planted,

    You can absolute positively bottle and bottle condition with screw top 64oz growlers. Anyone
    who says you can't obviously hasn't tried it and is giving an armchair answer. I know because I
    do it all t...

  • Posted in thread: How much 'sanitation' is too much? on 09-24-2007 at 08:23 PM
    Count me in as a user of the "Dishwasher sanitize setting." Never had a problem with any
    infections from this method. As long as the bottles were clean prior to loading in the
    dishwasher, you're good ...

    Ok, this bashing of proper screw on growlers has got to stop. I use them regularly (1-2 for
    each brew, more if I have them empty).You simply have to use the right screw-on-top. Polyseal

    My American wheat ales, 1 w/ 9# DME, the other with 6# DME are still bubbling away at about the
    same rate, and about the same time frame (2 weeks). As I'm heading on vacation Wednesday,
    they'll be in ...
