I have an idea that I am trying and I needed a little bit of expertise on the bottling side of things.
I am making a Scottish Heavy 70/- in one carboy and a English Cider in a one gallon bottle. My plan is to make a blended beer (not necessarily 1:5 ratio, but whatever ends up tasting good) with the two. I am worried that once I come up with a good blend and bottle it, that it will over ferment in the bottles and possibly explode.
I am sort of on a time crunch since I would like to serve these at a party but I was wondering if you had any tips on how to ensure a proper bottle conditioning? Also - How much priming sugar should I use?
I was thinking about blending and then letting it sit in the carboy for a week or so, and THEN adding the priming sugar before I bottle. but I will end up introducing a lot of oxygen as I am going to have to mix to taste. What do you think?
