Chain Cleaning, Fat Tire Style

This weekend I drank my share of Fat Tire Ale that could last me for a few days. So I wondered what I should do with some of the bottles left over. So I figured I’d do a little project with one of my bottles.

Step 1. Take an old Fat Tire Ale Bottle and your favorite degreaser. Then pour some degreaser, about an inch or so of fluid.

Step 2. Drop your greasy or old rusty chain in.

Step3. Place your thumb over the opening and shake it!

Shake it a few minutes, swirl it a bit and once you’re ready pour out the degreaser and pull the chain out. You’ll find that it does a great job in getting your dirt and grim out!
