Default Stuff in the bottom of my bottles????

So I just bottled my first batch on saturday and looked at it today, There is some sediment sitting in the botton of the bottles. I assume this is just the priming sugar but will it go away? I shook one bottle up and it came up so is there any worry? Do I need to shake up all the bottles? Any help would be welcomed. Thanks...

Its yeast sediment. Just leave it at the bottom and pour all but the last 1/4" of beer into a glass.

Enjoy.

LEAVE IT ALONE!!! In fact quit staring at your bottles, you can't "SEE" when they are ready...leave them alone in your warm closet and come back to them in 2 1/2 weeks.

Everything's fine...bottle conditioned beer has to have some sediment in it...your bottle is like a mini fermenter, sometimes they even have krauzens in the top, then it flocculates (falls) just like in your primary..

Read this...it's more info on sediment....

You think you have a lot of sediment on the bottom of your bottles, check out some Belgians tripels! Tons of "stuff" and many times great beer...in other words, nothing to worry about.

In fact, some believe that that 'stuff' on the bottom clears acne, helps digestion, saves the whales, etc. Pour off a clean glass, leave the last 1/4", swirl it in the bottle, and bottom's up!

Don't shake the bottles. What kind of a beer is it anyway? Like everyone else said, its normal and it is not priming sugar its yeast sediment. Depending on the type of beer it can even be desirable (think Hefeweizen here).

I've heard it can give male enhancement like Smilin' Bob.
