Default nooby question

Hey guys

Well this time i'm brewing 40 pints of cerveza which should be done friday. I'm considering getting a pressure barrel and co2 inejector to keep sediment to a mininum as ita inconvenient if i want to trasport my beer or keep it in the fridge having to keep it upright any tips where to get one? Also my main question is: if i put my beer in the barrel after fermentation is complete and inject co2 can i then bottle it and it will remain carobanted or would i literally have to dispense it out of the pressure barrel when i wanted a drink?

If you force carb, then bottle from a keg and want to retain all of the CO2, you need to use a counterpressure filler. Other devices can bottle from kegs, but you'll lose some CO2 (or beer) in the process.

Here is a method that uses no beer gun to fill bottles out of a keg. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/we-n...eer-gun-24678/

Mhm, any chance there's a way to carbonate it in the bottle? how much do you think a co2 tank and adapter to screw on the bottles would set me back? or is there an easier/cheaper way? XD

The easier way (to bottle from a Keg) was the way rbenn told you.

Carbonating in the bottle is possible without using the yeast, but not realistic.

You'd have to chill the beer to serving temperature (so, you'd have to cap it or wrap it), then open it, put on the lid contraption, crank up the CO2, then shake like a madman and hope you end up at the right pressure level when you're done. Take off the contraption, add a bottle cap. For every single bottle. No thanks!

There's no cheaper way than yeast eating sugars to carbonate. You're going to go through a lot of work to eliminate sediment in a bottle.

I have a contraption very similar to the one linked. You will lose some CO2 and on most bottles a bit of beer from foam-over trying to get the liquid to the bottom of the neck. It makes for sticky hands and a sticky overflow pot for me.

I make due with it for now, but it's less than ideal.

Oh fair enough... I'm sure a beergun is better, its just that the OP's response was asking for something OTHER THAN that, which is easy, like that convoluted system you described in the other post.


TL;DR : I was just being snarky.

Sure I'm going to a lot of work to avoid sediment, but why wouldn't I? If the only way I can store it is upright which is inconvenient for my fridge, and have to carry it to parties and make sure it doesn't get shaked about or have a cloudy beer? Also the wastage of people who don't like sediment in their drinks etc, I'd much rather just have no sediment and be able to store it how I like, take it about easy and drink it all
