By bottle rinser,are you meaning the jet rinser for the faucet? And we'd def like to see examples of those bottles. especially the out of production ones...

Hey thanks guys! Time to make a HUGE RIS or doppelbock and bottle condition the crap out of them probably throw some mead and rice wince into the mix as well. I think the bottles im most excited about are the 1.5L's and the 6.5oz champagne bottles. really unique and tough to find.

-by bottle washer i mean the attachment for the top of the bottle tree for sanitizing. already have the $5.00 hose/faucet deal.

-Real easy to do a daily search. save your browsing history. Seach Beer, Wine, and Brewing. Always make sure to click the first link, then when you come back you know what you havent seen :-)
