[quote=“amxman”]The item that is in every bar doesn’t work with bottles. It is for cleaning glasses, the plastic rod that holds the bristles is to large in diameter to fit. And not to mention how expensive they are.
I tend to rinse warmer than the cleaning solution, and my guess is that I’m using a too strong of a solution.
Sometimes I soak the bottles for more than a day, if I don’t have time to clean them at that time, this and the combination of water evaporating a bit may be the problem too. I just don’t want to toss any bottles if they can be cleaned with a simple contraption.
I can make this thing for way cheaper than one of those barmaid’s. The most expensive part will be the motor, and I have one that is not being used at the moment. It is overkill of a motor but for now it will work.[/quote]
yes it still is the same thing, just needs adjustments.
I don’t bottle much anymore but when I did just rinse well after use and I have never had to really scrub a bottle a HOT soak in PBW and HOTTER rinse and never had an issue.
If a bottle is moldy or something stuck on it not worth my time to try and clean it when I have plenty of other cleaner bottles to take its place from buying commercial beer here and there.
