Bottling beer - sanitizing bottles

On bottling day, I fill my kitchen sink with a hot oxyclean solution and attach a bottle washer to my kitchen tap.

I fill 12 bottles with oxy clean, shake them up, pour them out, and rinse them with the bottle washer.

Then I submerge them in my 5-gallon bucket of StarSan solution for a minute, and hang them on the bottle tree to drip dry.

Repeat with the next batch of 12 bottles until all bottles have been cleaned and sanitized.

For a five gallon batch

Here's how to make and add priming solutions:
1. Boil 3/4 cup of corn sugar (4 oz by weight), or 2/3 cup of white sugar, or 1 and 1/4 cup dry malt extract in 2 cups of water and let it cool.
