    I did the same thing, chopped the end off a cheap bottle brush and run it in a drill.
    It works pretty well with ordinary dish soap, cuts through the haze too.

    I like that drill brush idea and will have to give it a go. I have read of it before but never tried it.

    Any ideas on where best to get some used bottles? I have depleted my usual sources.

    I think most people just buy a case of SAB and then use the bottles afterwards.
    I still need to look into capping for longer term storage and ageing.

    1 x case of lion quarts = R132 (excluding deposits) that gives you 12 bottles that are pretty clean on the inside (just need to wash the lion out first.) It has the benefit of giving you a crate to store the bottles in. I am sitting with 5 crates of empties awaiting filling at the moment.
    There once was a man from Nantucket.
    Who brewed his beer in a bucket.
    He put the wort into there,
    to cut down on the air.
    Then drank it all up like a muppet.

    Problem I have with 750 quarts is the porridge that settles on the bottom. I usually pour very carefully not to disturb too much, but it is inevitable that the contents in the bottle upon return to vertical position distrubs the trub no matter what. Unless you have a 1 litre glass, best to share a quart w a buddy and pour both glasses in one pour.

    I'm preferring the 440ml bottles. Perfect for one pour in a 500ml glass with enough space for head.

    I saw this at my friend Leroy's place yesterday.

    Reminded me of this discussion, and for R35 I thought I would try and hack a brass bar lance with a spray slot (that I would need to make) onto it for high pressure cleaning inside all my bottles.
    Cheers,

    There are bottle washers you can buy that fit on a tap/hose, useful if its not too dirty to begin with.
    I always rinse out a bottle after pouring to avoid nasty cleaning later.
    I have also seen some Aussies using one of those inverted keg cleaners to jet out the inside of the bottle.
