    Craft beer bottles i keep for homebrew. However, if the label does not come off with hot water and soak, i chuck them in the bin. Darling Brew comes to mind.
    Grolch bottles are my testers. Normally fill about 4 of them per batch. Will open 1st one at 10 days, second one at 2 week, then 20 days. Or experimental brews goes into them.

    I used different types for different styles of beer. Sometimes it works, until I forget which is which.

    Haha, good idea Pretorjn ;-) I should stop collecting 6 of each bottle thinking I will use them in future and just stick with 330 and 440 ml bottles, but I also like those nice and tall 500 ml And Union bottles

    So my random question.
    I have a stainless fermenter that I've cleaned after my last brew day. My problem is that it still has a light fruity odour. Have you guys experienced the same?Planning to do a caustic wash over the weekend to see if I can get it odourless.

    I caustic then acid wash always.

    Odour implies residual organic matter.

    That is my my thinking and fear. Will give a odour report over the weekend post caustic wash.

    I saw an alternative CIP protocol somewhere that used acid, then caustic, then rinse.

    I'll see if I can find the info for you.

    Thanks, I've got a few fermenters that I'm willing to dedicate to the cause.

    illogical

    caustic is alkaline and removes organic, acid does not

    first caustic, then rinse then neutralise any caustic with acid cleaner
