Using a Full Size Sheet Pan to Make Bottling Easier – Catch Drips on Bottling Day

How about tray that has a 54 bottle (or so) capacity to making bottling day easier?

The pictured tray is actually a full size sheet pan that’s about 18″ x 26″.  As you can see it easily hold 54 bottles.  Those are Anchor Steam bottles which are a little wider than standard beer bottles.  You can probably get a few more long neck style bottles on a full size sheet pan.  This is large enough to hold enough bottles for a full 5 gallon batch.  If you leave 1/2 gallon of trub behind, you would use right around 48 (12) ounce bottles.  These are estimates.

This tray catches those in-between bottle drips, helps keep your bottling area clean and generally speeds up bottling and cleanup.  When you’re done you have one tray to rinse off.  This also pulls double duty for me come time to BBQ.  I use this tray for preparing and transporting ribs.  Note that this is actually too large to fit in my standard size oven.  I like that because it means it stays out of the oven and I don’t have to worry about odds and ends getting baked on to it.
