First time bottling

(1/2) > >>

jtconrad74:
I am going to be bottling my first homebrew tomorrow night (yay!) and had a question about sanitizing the bottles.  I have been using one step sanitizer and have some in a spray bottle to sanitize my bottling tree.  how long can sanitized bottles stay on the tree before bottling? 

hokerer:
Since the tree usually keeps the bottles upside down, you've got plenty of time.  Like days.

pinnah:
Yup, just think about where you are storing the tree,
like maybe not right next to the kitty litter  :D

maxieboy:
Why risk precious homebrew? Sanitize and bottle shortly thereafter...My .02  8)

euge:
Get 2-3 five gallon buckets. Fill one with sanitizer. The other(s) you can stack the bottles in upside down to drip dry- fitting them in together in concentric circles and stacking them up until you can't fit anymore.

Fill bottles.

Not a good idea to wait.

You can do that with kegs but bottles...?  :P
