After a couple year hiatus from home brewing, I'm ready to get back into it and I have been diligently consuming some local microbrews and saving the bottles in preparation. When I brewed before, for me, cleaning and sanitizing the bottles was the most dreadful part of the operation.
In the past, I've used a bottle sprayer, followed by a soak in sanitizing solution, then another spray, but I feel like I spend a lot of time cleaning end up making a mess.
What are effective and easy ways to clean bottles?
I'm not opposed to spending some money if it makes cleaning significantly easier.
