Beer and wine bottles tend to invade kitchens and become moldy if not properly stored. Our Bottle Tree features pegs to hold 90 beer or wine bottles in the proper inverted draining position, each peg slotted to allow ample air circulation for fast drying. This tree will hold beer bottles as large as 22 oz., and wine bottles as large as 750ml.
Stores 90 beer or wine bottles in only 18 square inches of floor space, and features an attachment point for the included Bottle Sanitizer. Bottles not included. Made in Italy.
I wasn't sure how much this would help, but (to ensure domestic tranquility) I needed to get my bottles out of the kitchen sink and this was on sale and a pretty good deal. I can't believe what a difference it makes on bottling day - cut my time in half! It does a great job sanitizing - much easier than my former method of pouring sanitizer in, shaking it up, and pouring it out. The rack is great as well, quite sturdy. I didn't think I would use it for storage much, but it is stable and so good at keeping dust out and the bottles out of the way that I use it all the time. If you think you might like this, believe the good reviews and make the plunge.
This is THE BEST way to store your bottles and then make short work of sanitizing them on bottling day. The thought of having to hand wash, rinse and sanitize a gazillion bottles is a nightmare! But thanks to this little dream wasted time and wasted storage space is a thing of the past!! Glad I purchased it and so happy to have it in my craft arsenal. Cheers!
I have been brewing for about a year now. At first, I was putting my rinsed bottles in the dishwasher on the "sanitize" cycle to prepare for bottling. I was getting some off-flavors in some of the batches that I thought might be related to insufficient sanitizing. After using this bottling tree with some Star-San solution, I have not had a single such problem. It doesn't take long to do a set of bottles and is convenient to set up right next to my bottling bucket.
Excellent product!! A MUST HAVE FOR A HOME BREWER!!!
Makes sanitation quick and easy. Sturdy, well worth the price. No complaints.
