Step 7:

In conclusion, there are a few things I skipped over that are crucial to your precious liquors quality; such as controlling the amount of carbonation or the temperature of the bottles.  However these rules differ for every different liquor being stored.  All I can say is do your research and you’ll be fine.  Thanks for checking out my instructable, questions and comments are appreciated.  Thanks!

P.S.  Above is a layout plan of some kind of bottle cleaning workstation.  I would love to build something like this but I live in an apartment.  So I would need to make it so that it folds up or packs away nicely.  I'm open for ideas.
everyone here is going to hate this comment I bet. I break a huge rule when bottling by following the lessons of my older brother and father. I do no sanitize my bottles before bottling. I clean them good after drinking the beer from them and leave them up side down to dry and don't flip them back over until I use them. You may end up with 1 or 2 bad bottles that get contaminated per batch but when you have 50+ bottles who cares! I save hours by not doing that step non of us have had issues.
i always bottle to the part where the bottle is getting narrower. is there any problem with that? (heineken bottle- nonbeer brew)
We sell easy clean in our shop, although I am not a fan of one-step cleaner/sanitizer & believe iodophor or star san is best for sanitation: easy clean IS a no-rinse sanitizer.
Easy clean is a cleaner, not a sanitizer. It's pretty similar to the oxyclean you are using in the first step. If you want to sanitize after cleaning, you should use something like Star San.

This layout for bottling would be great. So methodical, you'd never have to worry about contamination. <br><br>I am a homebrewer and my girlfriend, inspired by our constant confusion over what is in each bottle, made these awesome chalkboard labels.

This is a great overview! Lots of good tips. :)
