Default Bottle Sediment

My bottles are two weeks conditioned and i still see some noticeable sugar sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Why is this?

My guess is you are seeing the yeast as it falls out of suspension after it gobbles up the yummy priming sugar and goes to sleep.

So i shouldnt be alarmed..Did i not dissolve the sugar enough when i boiled it prior to bottling? Is this common? Should i condition the bottles at a 45 degrees

Everything is fine, ALL bottle conditioned beers, NOT JUST HOMEBREW have sediment in it....It's just like trub in the bottom of a fermenter, the yeast that ferments the priming sugar flocculates and settles in the bottom of the bottle.

You can read all about bottle conditioned beers and sediment here; http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/anyo...8/#post1379528

There's even a video that teaches you how to pour bottle conditioned beers, leaving the sediment behind...but it is easy to reduce the amount of sediment in the bottles...I talk about THAT there too.
