Keeping the Bottle Filler Sanitized

Keeping the Bottle Filler Sanitized

You’ve been diligent cleaning and sanitizing all the bottles, hoses, racking tube and caps or corks.  Now it’s time to bottle.  Start the syphon, insert the bottle filler into the bottle, hold it down while the bottle fills, then move it to the next bottle and the cycle continues.  You’ve filled a few bottles and are ready to cap or cork before filling more bottles.  What do you do so the bottle filler does not become contaminated while you’re applying the closure?

Here’s a simple solution.  When sanitizing the bottles before beginning include a champagne, wine or 22 oz. beer bottle in the mix.  Champagne bottles work best because they are heavy enough not to tip over.  Then while corking or capping the bottle filler can rest in the sanitized champagne bottle free of contamination while you’re affixing closures and be ready for the next segment without re-sanitizing.
