Description

If there is a wine making product that should get a design award for usable simplicity, this is it. Imagine a system that for under $100 allows you to rinse bottles one case at a time, temporarily store them while they drain upside down, and then flush them with inert gas prior to filling. You're not dreaming... please read on!

The base portion of the system connects to a water supply for rinsing or to your inert gas system for purging/flushing. In our ideal plan you have two bases. One is used for rinsing, the other, sitting right next to it, is used for purging.

Comes with a female garden hose fitting attached to a plastic 1/2" barb fitting on the unit.

The rinsing base might be placed in a tub that is recirculating with sanitizing solution (such as: CL27) or might just drain to the ground if you are working outside.

*Note you will need to buy as many racks (CE971) as needed. Each rack holds 12 bottles.

12.25" L x 10.75" W x 3" H

Max Temp: 167° F (75° C)

Great bottle rinsing system
I use this base with the MoreWine supplied bottle racks for rinsing and sterilizing my bottles. I connect the base to my hot water supply (standard garden hose connections) with an in-line "detergent" injector (available from other sources) that injects Sani-Clean into the hot water stream. It takes only a few seconds to rinse and sterilize a case of bottles with this system. The bottles remain in the rack (inverted) until dry. You can prepare 25 cases of glass for bottling in just minutes. Only issue I have seen with the base is the rack alignment pegs (the red cone shaped pegs) break off easily. That is the only real area of product design needed.

Works well enough
https://youtu.be/VGSuGuKMdAM

I am using 2 of these with the same 1HP pump to resirculate heated cleaner through bottles. It works but the overall feel of it is pretty cheap. The nozzles are non removable and 2 of them sprayed to the side, I fixed this by drilling them all out to 1/8 inch holes. You will a strong pump to spray 24 like that. The hose that is attached is too short and most of them will probably not be used with a garden hose. They could have omitted it for the end user to install and make it a bit lower price. They work well enough but you are prkbably going to have to modify them.

This works great
I used by Mark II pump and tray, filled it with PBW solution, cleaned 60 bottles no problem. Filled tray with clean water and rinsed 60 bottle no problem (I had faucet continually running into the tray for fresh rinse water). Then, right before bottling, I filled the tray with sanitizer and sanitized 60 bottles no problem. I recommend this product in combination with the bottle holder.

Worthwhile Investment
This makes bottle cleaning much easier. I have three and can clean two cases in half the time as manual cleaning. This and the rack that goes with it are a worthwhile investment for any home brewer!

Saved me a ton of time
The base (along with the rack) saved me many hours of arduous work. What would have taken me at least two weekends only took me ~ 1 hour. I set this within a large cooler hooked up to a submersible pump, placed the rack on the top and turned it on. 12 bottles cleaned (and I mean 'clean') in 3 minutes. No more scrubbing each bottle by hand, hoping I did the job well. A huge timesaver!

Works just fine
Put in a Rubbermaid tub and paired with a cheap AC recirculating pump from freight Harbor with the whole unit sitting in the tub. Used the bottle holder that more beer also sells. Worked just fine (used to clean with pbw-haven't used to sanitize).
