I'm new to making sodas and I'm having a lot of fun with it.
Here's how I have been sanatizing my 12 oz glass bottles. I rinse them with hot tap water soon after use. Then, I add some hot water to the bottle, put my hand over it and shake it for 10 seconds. I pour out the water and let them dry.
Prior to use, I add about 3 oz. of Star San into the bottle, swish it around, pour it out, and stand it upside down for a few minutes before use.
Is this process likely to get them clean and sanitized enough since I'm not using soap or a brush?
Also, do you think its safe to use them within a few minutes of rinsing with Star San while they are still a little damp?
