YORK UNIVERSITY - The world’s strongest beer, Uncle Igor’s Famous Falling Over Water, brewed by the Ross Brewery in Bristol, U.K., is 17.3% alcohol by volume. Holy Bat-Buzzes Batman! The most expensive beer ever sold on first offer from the brewery (as opposed to aged, rare, collector, and vintage specimens) is Samuel Adam’s Triple Bock which at one time went for $100 for a case of 24, six ounce bottles.
I have been sanitizing my bottles by emersing them in a water/bleach bath for 30min or so, and then rinsing them out with a JetWasher. This seems to work fine, but it is labor intensive! My question is: Is there an easier, bulletproof method? How do you do it and have you had any bad luck with that method?
First of all, I just have to let you know that I really dig sniffing chicks that brew. It’s a big turn on for this pooch. Can’t say as I can put my paw on it exactly, but it’s a good thang. Personally, because as I’m sure you are well aware, canines have exceptionally clean mouths with nearly non-existent bacteria levels, I lick my bottles clean. Of course I have to be careful to be sure that there aren’t any Milk Bone particles or rawhide chewy bits in my mouth when I do it. I’ve really only once had my beer affected by this cleaning method and if I remember right, I had just returned from a road trip to Tijuana which may have had something to do with it. In any case, to answer your question: Yep. There are several easier ways. Toss them in the old oven with your brownies at 350 and bake them for 30 minutes, let ‘em cool, and bottle away. No kidding. It works. I know a pit bull that simply puts his bottles and bowls in the dishwasher before bottling and has never had a problem. As a general rule, it’s always a good idea to rinse the "H-E-double hockey sticks" out of each bottle as you consume your private stock nectar. Hope that helps, Lisa! Keep on Brewing!
