First post! Whoooo
I have just got back into brewing. It has been about 8-9 years since I last did and I can tell you that a lot has changed in homebrew
When I first started I read that I did not have to prime for bottling if I didn't use a secondary. So far I haven't had a flat brew yet.
Now after much reading...I have decided to leave it in the primary for 3 weeks instead of two. I still don't plan on using a secondary since I can't seem to find a concensus on if this actually makes the beer better and I hate risking infection from the transfers (and the small inevitable loss of beer
My question is should I now worry about using a priming sugar for bottling? Was the reason my beer was coming out carb'd because of stopping fermentation in the primary before it was complete?
Thanks for help and opinions!
