Good trick didn't give it a thought to do something like that.

I have gone through over half of my bottles now and gave some to a few people. All in all I'm saying good for a first brew. The up front taste is good, but seems a little lacking in the back of the mouth.

I also only used 3.3oz of priming sugar, trying to keep the carbonation to style. Some bottles turned out good but some could've used a little more. Seems like the sugar didn't mix consistently. I think I will do what others do and give just a gentle stir a couple times while racking to the bottling bucket.

When I do the gentle stir thing,I do so in an upward motion. Thought maybe that'd help mix things evenly through the entire column of liquid.
