my bottle tree is my dishwasher.
i have a "fancy-shmancy "Kitchen-Aid" with a sanitary rinse cycle.
hold 50-60 bottles no prob.
rinse em half way decent, then run it with no soap, on heavy wash, with hi temp scrubb, and sani rinse.
nothing can live through that!
then, they are right there for the grabbin'.
no bottle tree needed.
we will see how it works tomorrow.
wow! i did one hell of a job typin' after 8 micro brews.... cannot wait till some homebrew is ready
