if they have any gunk dried inside of them, just stick them in the bath tub and fill it with hot water and let em sit for awhile. Dirty bottles are no big deal, you just have to work a little harder.

just make sure they don't experience any substantial sudden temperature changes or you may get condensation inside the bag which will rain on your parade real quick.

Last time I made it I let it sit for a few months as well. It improves with age in my opinion.

not really related to what you should do with the extra beer, but that is precisely why I started using a 6.5gal for my secondaries. It's worth it to not lose any volume if you are making additions
