Be sure to let the Defib Dopplebach bottle condition at least as long as recommended by Mr. Beer

Look like anything you saw on the "post yourinfection" thread. If not, you're good

Have just starting brewing using Mr. Beer and have 2 questions. Brewed and bottled the Lager and it is carbonating at 55 degrees for 2 weeks. Is this finished and when should i put in fridge? 2nd brewed Blonde Ale and it has bee carbonating at 65 degrees for 1 week plus. When is this ready to go into fridge? Lastly if there is still a bit of sediment in bottles does that mean priming sugar is still in bottle.

Bottles are better primed/conditioned at 70 degrees for 3 weeks or so, then into the fridge.
The sediment should be there, it means the yeast is going its job and carbing the beer.

Getting ready to bottle my first batch with glass bottles. I have 12 fat tire and 12 Sam Adams bottles. I rinsed them after I drank them, they have been sitting in the garage since. What is my next step? I have oxiclean. Figured set up a bucket full of that (how much oxi per gallon of water?). Let it sit for an hour? Then just rinse in hot water again? Then use the mr beer cleaner right before bottling? With no rinse after?

Any tips to using the red Barron capper? Was going to cap half and put half in the plastic bottles to compare.
