    Storing and rinsing bottles sanitized with sodium metabisulfite?

    I'm wondering about the best way to sanitize, store, and reuse wine bottles. With my carboys, I rinse out 3X with warm water and then sanitize with sodium metabisulfite. I drain the SM from the carboy but don't rinse it away while stored empty figuring the SM residue provide extra protection...
