Yo brewhead...didn't you mean to insert some gentle stirring in there? Maybe once after racking, and again after bottling half?

And what's up with taking a hydrometer reading after adding priming sugar?

I think you mean 1 cup of water.

no, he meant a gallon, but he's not talking about using a gallon for priming... he's referring to the kits where you don't even boil the wort before fermenting -- just boil the water and add it to the extract. his point was that if that's sanitary enough, then boiling the actual priming solution for 2 minutes is certainly not too little time.

Ok Never used that kind of set up before.

Don't think I want to either.

um i keep the stirring to a min. the action of the siphon stirs enough i've found. i haven't had any that were not carbonated.

my bad

i should've been more specific - i usually draw off some to do a reading with before i put the beer in the bucket with primer. i put it on the shelf with the hydro in - to settle and get all the bubbles out and temp adjust so i can make a better reading...my eyes are bad enough without having to squint around small foam bubbles and such...at a scale
