I just put a cup or 2 of water in the mic for 2 min and add the sugar. Dissolves and blends nicely in the beer.

Hey has anyone looked into rubber stamps. Small ones would work right?!? Ink comes off with a scrubby. Especially if you make the same batch often. What do you all think of that idea.

Thx guys. I've been brewing for a while and on my last batch it struck me and I thought about it. Ya know, one of those "why do we do this" moments.

Is there any difference between adding priming sugar directly into the bottling bucket compared to heating it up with warm water letting it cool and then adding it to the bottling bucket.

Writing on Bottles

So cleaning off the labels is a pain as we all know. And when we have the bottles all cleaned the last thing you want to do is put another label on there.

So is anyone writing on their bottles...

Filtering

Just a quick question. Do any of you filter your beer? If so, what are you techniques? Is it only for kegging? Just trying to minimize the sediment in bottle. Looking for ideas. Thx ;)

Yep I slip an old book or a kid bowl under mine. They also sell "wedges" for carboys. Look into those too.

Another thing too is that they are really made for glass carboys. Technically they were designed for the use of aquariums to track water temps. I had one on my bucket and found it fairly accurate but...

I have thrown mine in primary with the yeast. I've added it to secondary too. Both ways are great. Since I use buckets I just pour it in a bag and toss it in.

Instead of racking on top of the berries can't you blend the fruit and put it into a grain bag. The clean up would be easier. Add the bag to the bucket an rack when ready for bottling.

Ok so it's that simple?

Just rack off 2, 2.5 gal secondary's and add fruit and see how it turns out?

The yeast and all that will still be present enough for carbing?

Splitting batches

Hey all I'm experimenting with batches. I'd like to split an IPA equally and add 2 different fruit types.

So how do I do this. Make 2, 3-4 gal batches or split a 5 gal batch.

I'm worried...

I say you may get a slightly higher ABV but I don't see that there would be any real harm. This will be interesting to see how it turns out.

I always add my sample back in. Why waste good beer with every sample. As long as you sanitize properly you'll be fine.

Wine degasser

Does anyone use a wine degasser to aerate their wort. I was reading a link for Skeeter Pee and he used it to aerate that. Wondering if people use it for beer.
