Default Are my bottles still steril enough after a week?

Hey guys,

A week ago I cleaned my bottles with star san placed them upside down in a covered plastic tote. Thinking I was going to bottle my beer then but I got side tracked, do you think they are still sterile a week latter or should I do it over again?

Starsan is a wet contact sanitizer. So no,you'd have to do it again.

Just put them in your dishwasher after you clean them.... Run a hi temp wash, hi temp rinse, and then heat to dry. Works like a charm....

I do have a sanitize setting on my dishwasher. How long should I wait after its done before I can bottle? Or is it OK to fill a hot bottle?


Thanks Guys!

Don't use detergent if your sanitizing in the dishwasher.

I would think if you left the dishwasher door closed it should stay pretty sanitary until the bottles cooled. I would not fill hot bottles. Maybe warm would be ok though.

I run my through the cycles I mentioned and then I let them sit until cool. Sometimes I open the dishwasher up to hurry the cooling up and I have never had an issue.

How exactly does a dishwasher spray into a tiny bottle opening and sanitize when it won't clean my plates 100%
