Default Sanitizing bottles

so i'm curious what others do.....for sanitizing bottles i usually fill a bucket with water/Star San put some bottles in let them sit for a few minutes and then dump them out and bottle them....What do others do? I see the sanitizing bottle they have where you just place the bottle over it and it sprays it but curious what everyone else does.

I do what you do. Just make sure the bottle are clean as can be before sanitizing. I have had a few off tasting bottles that I believe came from improper cleaning

I soak in oxiclean/rinse/starsan for 10 mins then dunk them in a bucket full of distilled water to rinse / set on bottle drain tree like in pic above while racking to bottling bucket. Then bottle. I use this system due to having well water. I dont trust rinsing with well water. But I do use it for oxiclean or starsan mix.

You can save a step and just put on the bottle tree straight from the star san. It's a no rinse sanitizer.

After drinking contents, rinse with warm/hot water then store until I have 4-5 cases and a fresh batch of BBright. Soak bottles for 30-45 minutes and rinse. Store upside down until ready to fill, use Vintonator to spritz inside of clean bottle - fill - cap - wait... Repeat.
