You can't bottle while still hot, can you?

Seriously doubt that will do much to whatever is inside the bottles. I do believe that the dishwasher 'heater' will only increase the temperature of the hot water feeding it by another 20F. So, you're looking at 160-170F for temperature. VERY hot to touch, and no where near safe for bottling.

yeah, but while you are shaking those bottles of pbw, i'm having a home brew and watching a pot boil.

Well, I don't need to clean bottles (kegging ) so it's irrelevant for me. I'll have my kicked keg cleaned and sanitized before you've gone through even one batch of bottles in the boil.

This may take a cuople days but, buy yourself a couple cases of beer and a six pack. Drink the beer and rinse out the bottles as you empty them. Soak them in Oxyfree then rinse. No gunk.

My sister never did. Either the sanitize cycle on the dishwasher or some contraption she put into the microwave.

All my bottles are adults...

No kids here (single, live alone, etc.) so no idea. When my niece and nephew were growing up (both teenagers, one almost out of high school) I don't think they boiled the bottles. At most, they ran them through the DW to clean.

IMO, you need to have some funk in what you eat (from time to time)... Helps keep your immunity up to other things. Granted, I wouldn't suggest exposing an infant to the flue, but come on people.

Yep. They do indeed, and pediatricians recommend it for at least the first 12 weeks. After that, they're a bit more resilient, and you can diagnose effectively without a spinal tap.
