No brewing. Kegged my tripel. Yard work and gutters followed by smoked ribs, brats and a cigar.

Good point Joe. Most people consume calorie intensive foods with thier beer. Then blame the beer for the belly. My eating habbits are very clean and I still have a 30 inch waist in spite of all the beer I drink.
I am turning my 5' x 10' basement cellar into a a cold room with an A/C unit and a coldbot. I have a friend that did this in an even bigger space and he maintains 40 degrees no problem.
Joe Sr., yes, this was a stout extract kit and add to that the fact it had some lactose (non-fermentable) sugar in it.
Visually the bottles were perfect. While I did forget to use the bottle brush I did spend a fair amount of time soaking, rinsing, etc. and when I inspected them after the last rinse, they looked "brand new". I even held the bottles up to a light and didn't see anything. If the oxy-clean or anything else was left inside, it was not visible the naked eye.
Skunky weird taste and nasty after flavor.
With all of that work, and a desire to bottle after 4 weeks of waiting, I FORGOT TO SCRUB THE INSIDE OF THE BOTTLES WITH A BOTTLE BRUSH
If you soaked in OxiClean, I don't think this is an issue. To be honest, I just rinse my bottles right after pouring - no scrubbing. The only time I ever use my bottle brush is if there's visible crud on the bottom that won't rinse clean. Frankly, OxiClean should get most of that. My bet is that you'll be fine.
