Sage advice. I have never tried bottling without my bottling wand, but I don't even want to think about it. Plus they are only probably $2-3 at a LHBS. I would be surprised if it was much above that.

I used the carb tablets for the first time last week. They are slow to dissolve, so don't rush the conditioning phase.

Don't rush the fermentation either. Let it go for the full three weeks. I don't do 'Mr. Beer', so I'm not sure how much sediment there will be. Shouldn't be much since you started out with syrup.

Don't fear the sediment in the bottle. Doesn't hurt a thing and you have other things to worry about. Clarity in brewing will come with experience.

Well I picked one up last week. Slick looking addition to the beer making equipment. Should make it much easier.

Thanks.

Thanks for the input. I did a sample taste today and I think I'm ready to bottle. Will be letting it ferment for 3 weeks for sure.
