Default Is there anyway to avoid yeast sediemnt in beer bottles?

I know yeast settles to the bottom when it is primed and is being carbonated. Is there anyway to stop the yeast from falling like that. I want to be able to drink right out of the bottle just like commercial beer.

There are several things you can do...

1. Let the beer stay in the primary longer.
2. Let the beer stay in the secondary longer...and double that.
3. Use gelatin.
4. Filter it.
5. Bottle.

Beer should NEVER be drunk from a bottle or a plastic cup...glass only. And the proper glass at that.

Drinking good beer is more about the experience.

You'd have to force carb it. The yeast falling to the bottom in the bottle are the same as the yeast falling to the bottom in the fermenter. Without those yeast, you'd have no carb.

Am I weird because I actually look forward to that small amount of yeast at the bottom of a bottle (providing its been in secondary)?

don't worry McKBrew, I also have the sick outlook of looking forward to beer with all those goodies still in there. Its a sad sight in my eyes when I'm handed a wheat beer thats crystal clear.

Campden tablets and a kegging system.

Nope. Unless you want flat beer...just don't add the priming sugar.

Yeast sediment is a fact of beer life. It won't be long before you go to kegs.

You mean commercial swill right? I'd hate to see someone drinking ANY commercial microbrew from the bottle. First and foremost, you get no aroma, which is insulting to the brewmaster that carefully crafted and timed the hop additions for the recipe.


its sorta like ordering filet mignon and then slathering it in ketchup. You can do it, but it's sorta defeating the original intent.

Since Budweiser and the rest have no aroma (or taste) to begin with, they're fine for drinking straight from the bottle or (shudder) can.

While a nice crystal clear beer is quite pretty to look at, I kind of like the taste character yeast provides. But I am also a big fan of wheat beers too.

Just pour carefully and leave the yeast in the bottle. If you are drinking from the bottle just give her a shake before you drink any and you will never notice.

Right. You don't see too many pictures of German Bier Gardens with people slamming bottles together in a toast.

And the classic picture of an Irish Pub? Those aren't Guniess bottles they're hoisting.

And all that time you spend dryhopping your secondary to get that extra hoppy aroma? Wasted in a bottle.

Even now, I won't (when forced to drink it) drink BMC from a bottle.
