So, just before we fell asleep last night, SMBO and I had the following conversation:

Quote:
SWMBO: So, are all those bottles you cleaned ready for when the beer's done fermenting?

Me: No, they'll have to be sanitized before I bottle them.

SWMBO: How?

Me: Well, I'll put them in the over at 250 for about an hour and a half, let them cool, then cover the opening with foil.

SWMBO: Will you have enough bottles for both batches?

Me: I think so.

SWMBO: Well, I guess you can buy more empty bottles if you don't right?

Me: Yeah, and if I'm real lucky, I may find some bottles with beer already in them!

SWMBO: *cracks up then punches me in the arm* Ass!
Just thought I'd share

Funny...but you're not REALLY gonna go the oven sanitization route are you?

Such a waste of gas/or electricity...just get a vinator and some no-rinse and be done with it...

+1

Wash the glas in the dishwasher (assuming you have already removed any interior grunge) and spritz some StarSan down the bottles throat.

Hm, that would give me a reason to go to the LHBS... I also need some PBW and Star San. And some priming sugar and caps. And to see if they sell better bottles.

Skip the pbw and go get oxyclean...cheaper and imho works much better...save the extra couple bucks and buy a sixpack...er I mean do a quick bottle re-stock.

Thanks for the tip(s)!

Also, buying beer was a foregone conclusion. I mean, really, what do you take me for?

I cant understand why anyone would go buy empty beer bottles, especially at the current prices. To me its almost like buying used condoms......a waste of money and someone already did the fun part.

i've also noticed that the ones from the lhbs that I got with my kit seem thinner in comparison to the ones I've acumulated...plus the previously used ones are darker as well...And some of them, like the Bud Amer Ale are really nifty looking.

+1 to that! the empty ones definitely look like cheaper bottles ie thinner and lighter colored.
