Default drying bottles

After you sanitize your bottles, do you guys rinse? and if you dont have a bottle tree, do you just let them sit out in the open untill they dry, or do you just fill them up still wet inside?

Fill 'em wet! Just about every sanitizer useful to us as homebrewers are 'wet' sanitizers. As long as the surface is wet, the bugs are getting zapped.

I don't have a bottle tree, I just open my dishwasher, and pull out the top rack and let them drain there for about 5 minutes or so. I don't bother to let them dry, just drain for a few min.

What kind of sanitizer are you using? I'm a StarSan junkie- and a little in the bottle won't harm the beer. In fact, the yeast will consume the sanitizer.

Well, Easy Clean is a cleaner- not a sanitizer. You'll want to get a true no-rinse sanitizer like Iodophor or StarSan. Bleach can work, but you have to rinse the BEJEEZUS out of it....and keep a very dilute concentration.

I use my bottling tree after using StarSan, but it's mainly for organizational purposes at that point. The bottles are still wet inside when they're filled.

I use the heat cycle in my dishwasher to sanitize my bottles. Everything else gets soaked in or sprayed down with StarSan and used wet.
