Here it comes! I've got two 5 gallon batches of beer sitting in my bedroom waiting to be had by many. I'm bottling tomorrow and these are my first two batches, so drink with an heir of caution! I will try to snag my brothers digital camera or screw it I'll just use my iPhone camera -- but either way I hope it is super tasty.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks for bottling/sanitizing/whatever? I'm all ears!

ABSOLUTELY AND DEFINITELY READ AND FOLLOW THOSE INSTRUCTIONS!!!
I actually LIKE bottling because I do it exactly as depicted in that thread...if you have all of the equipment set it up JUST LIKE HE SHOWS.. simple as pie to bottle then. If you DON'T have all of the equipment go buy it and bottle next weekend!!!

I highly recommend the vinator, if you can get one by bottling time. It makes the whole process so much smoother for me, and I regret not having invested in one sooner than a few months ago.

If you are sharing this brew I would suggest call the people who will be drinking it over to help bottle... more hands can help make the time fly-by... that is if they are clean and don't sneeze on your bottles...

Okay, since no one else said it. . . .

One Hundred Bottles of Beer on the Wall, One Hundred Bottles of . . . etc.


P.S. I blame that on the Warka Strong that I'm drinking.

I have a great setup for bottling. At first I didn't mind it, but after bottling 10gallons of beer in one sitting multiple times, it started to get more annoying each time. Definitely get setup good with the right equipment though.

Awesome, I have to wait until this afternoon to bottle - my brother has an extra case at his apartment but he doesn't get out until around 4pm. That's ok though it gives me time to figure out how I want to set this operation up.
