Chemical resistant plastic is a good thing when dealing with Sar San. I used to store diluted Star San in a distilled water gallon jug. When it eventually ate through the plastic and leaked all over… I realized that was a bad idea.
Feedback from HBF Reader Da Kine: “This is a great product. I had some bottles from Ace Hardware that lasted maybe 2 brews. Based on HBF’s hands-on review, I got some of these and they’ve lasted great over dozens of brews.”
I own this bottle and sprayer. It works great. Check out my Hands on Review

45 Seat Bottle Tree for storage and drying your bottles from MoreBeer
from MoreBeer: Makes managing sanitized bottles for a whole batch easy, and lets you get the bottling mess out of the kitchen–no more using the dishwasher rack to hold sanitized bottles.
The Rotating Bottle Tree holds 45 bottles. It will simplify the bottling process. Just rinse the bottles out well after use and store upside down on the bottle tree where they remain clean. When you want to bottle, utilize product B520 (seen below) to inject sanitizing solution, such as Star San or SaniClean, into the bottles to sanitize. Wait 1 minute and bottle. You can also do the sanitizing ahead of time and let the bottles air dry upside down.

Star San is my sanitizer of choice. When mixed properly, it’s food safe and no rinse. Required contact time is one minute. It has worked very well for me for quite some time and I’m convinced that it’s one of the most economical solutions available if you use the spray bottle method outlined here. I’ve used a single 32 oz bottle for years. Like 5+ years.
Cleaning, Sanitizing and… Sterilizing
The first step in sanitizing is cleaning. Cleaning and sanitizing are two separate steps. Cleaning physically removes dirt and large contaminants. After your item is physically clean it can be microscopically sanitized. Sanitization kills many (but not all) germs, bacteria and microorganisms on an already clean surface. I typically use a mixture of PBW (Powdered Brewery Wash) for cleaning. Sanitizing and Sterilizing are different. Sterilizing is killing every living thing. In home brewing typically, we’re not interested in sterilizing, we’re only interested in sanitizing.
