I think we have a winner!!! You have to choose between a new Hoover rolling vacuum-cleaner, this lovely dinette set, or....
Meh, f*** it.
You nailed the issue in every one of your previous posts: sanitation.
Granted, it's something that takes a few batches to really nail, but you'll learn, in time, everything that needs cleaning, sanitizing, or boiling. I've taken to using a 20-gallon Rubbermaid 1/2 full of sanitizer for everything
on brew or bottle day: soaking transfer lines, bottling bucket, the primary itself, swiping some for sanitizing bottle caps & even my airlock.
Base rule of thumb: thoroughly sanitize everything
that comes into contact with the beer post-boil.
