I ran out of star San to sanitize my bottles so I put them threw the dishwasher on a 'anti bacteria' cycle. Think they will be ok?

What do you mean by clean? I had them all rinsed and such. No big particles of anything when I put them in the wash

Because the small openning in beer bottles is too small to wash the inside in the dishwasher. Only the sanitize cycle is of any use. I thought that's what you were referring to?...

Well hopefully it ends up ok. Either way the day is a success when this is the end result

If it happens again, you can bake them in the oven to sanitize also.

This is what I used to do before kegging. It works like a charm...

My LHBS has a good article online about this.

This is what I do. Easy and works well.
