My wife and I bottled our first ever homebrew yesterday. Everyone emphasizes the importance of cleanliness at all steps, so I thoroughly cleaned all our equipment yesterday after bottling was complete. The equipment air dried as directed.
However, the inside of the siphon tubing, the auto-siphon itself and the bottle filler still have moisture and beads of water on the inside of them. They have sat out for over 24 hours now. Obviously, I am most concerned that the moisture will create conditions amenable to bacterial growth.
Are there any tricks to drying these out? Is this just normal because of the small tubing?
Thanks for any help you could offer a couple of newbies!
