When asked what the most important factor in making good beer is most brewers will put cleaning and sanitizing at the top of their list. I keep sanitizer handy throughout my brew day and transfers using two methods.
1. The Bucket. I keep a bucket full of sanitizer within arms reach the whole day. If a piece of equipment like a thermometer or a spoon aren’t in use at the moment, they are in the sanitizer. This not only helps to keep things sanitized but makes them easy to find.
2. The Spray Bottle. I also like to keep a spray bottle of sanitizer handy. This is useful on brew day but can also be quite nice during fermentation, transferring, and packaging as well for those items you can’t throw in a bucket.
What tips and tricks do you have for making sanitizing easy?
