But you don't bottle anymore? The jet wash simply is a belt and suspenders method. I too rinse my bottles, but they might sit a while before being used again. Anything from dust, to spiders to a little tiny bit of crud can get in there. While I agree star san does great things, it doesn't blow spiders out of the bottle as easily as the jet washer.
Many ways to do this, in this case it's about using a dishwasher. So my suggestions pertain to "if" you use a dishwasher, you might consider using a 'jet washer" when you do. cheers mate.
well, i do still bottle sour beers into 750ml bottles but those i bake in the oven at 250 degrees until i remember to turn off the oven then i bottle the next day or later the same day. i have 2 little girls who are intent on "helping" me whenever they see me bottling so i prefer to keg, 10 min and i'm done.
