Newbie brewer ( 3batches so far). Have box of new 16 ounce bottles. Do I need to clean before sanitizing, or can I just sanitize prior to bottling?

I'd clean them. A little piece of mind that everything is as clean as it will get.

Just make sure you rinse them well in hot water before drying & storing. The cleaner has to be rinsed no matter whether it's Oxyclean free or PBW.
