Does anyone else (who's unfortunate enough to be bottling still ) cut the handle off their bottle brush and stick it in a power drill to clean their bottles? It works a treat and almost makes it bearable.
Sounds cool!....Last time I cleaned my bottles i didnt even use a brush though. I soaked them in bleach water for like an hour, then rinsed them with the thing that attaches to the sink that sprays up in the bottle, then I have this thing you fill with sanitizing solution and put the bottle on it upside down and push it down a bunch of times and it sprays it inside of it, then i put them on the bottle tree to dry for a few, then bottle.
I also rinse them out good after I drink them. I think thats the biggest key so stuff doesnt grow in them.
Yeah...Ive had bottles of like bud light and stuff that have sat in my basement after poker games for a while and its pretty disgusting what grows in them. I usually throw them away instead of returning them.
I do pretty much the same thing. I take them out of the bleach solution (2oz per 5g) once the container gets full, don't bother to rinse until I'm ready to use them again. Come bottle day I hot rinse them and then throw them in sanitzing solution. Works great, no scrubbing.
