    You might want to go outside and check you electric meter while you run the oven for an hour at
    400 and then reconsider your statements.1. Sterile is not required. Sanitized is.2. Not more
    economical ...

    Some people will literally cook their bottles in an oven. I'm more of a "run through the
    dishwasher cycle on sanitize/high heat, THEN dunk them in star-san immediately before filling
    (no drying, no ri...

    Hi Kyle,One thing about these plastic fermenter lids. They sometimes have little notches cut
    around the perimeter of the lid. They're actually molded in, with a little extra bit the
    consumer is expect...

    For what it's worth, shipping from Austin Homebrew has been fast to my home in New Hampshire,

    I have experienced the often mentioned extract "twang" when buying extract kits from my local
    homebrew store. It could be characterized as sourness, I suppose. Are you using extract kits
    (especially w...

    That's a great deal. Personally, I'd keep the bottling sugar, assuming it tastes OK. If it
    tastes normal, I don't see what could be wrong with it. It's not like it's a leavening agent or
    anything like...

    They may or may not seal properly. It's not worth risking a batch of beer when lipped bottles
    are so readily available. Try your local beverage store. Most I've talked to will sell them to
    you for the...

    I think you'll be fine if you use new caps and keep your sanitization up to snuff. I think
    there's a product called carb tabs (little dextrose drops) you can add individually to each
    bottle. This woul...

  • Posted in thread: Bottle sanitization question on 04-07-2009 at 06:49 PM

    some reason, but it works very well.I simply cook 55 or so clean and dry bottles in an oven at
