Thanks for the further clarification guys. I joined HBT 5 months ago, so it's a good thing you posted about this again, Revvy.

Sanitizing ONLY the caps you are using definitely makes sense. You don't want to sanitize too many caps and then have to store them for later use, at which point they may be ineffective.

Case closed. Sanitize the caps and enjoy the benefits. The manufacturer confirmed that it takes days to complete it's work. This seems to be case closed.

Sorry to bring up old topics, but once you put the caps in sanitize do you need to turn the bottles over? if so how long should you leave them like that? Also do you sanitize them one at a time or all at once?

This is my second batch but first with the absorbing caps.

You don't have to store them upside down at all. It eats what O2 is in the headspace. But yes sanitize the caps first. They must be used within one hour after touching liquid. I usually throw about 20 in at a time so I limit my waste.
