Is this right? Any obvious no no's?
. Use the calculator in the previous post. Boil the sugar solution for about 10 minutes. (about 2 cups of water and the amount and type of sugar for the beer style) Put the priming solution in the bucket and siphon in the wort so that it swirls and mixes.
Now the difference. Fill the bottles now
and cap them. Store the bottles in a dark place at about 70 degrees F for 3 weeks. Chill one for a day or 2 and try it. If it has not fully carbonated wait another week. etc. Some will carbonate fast and others can take quite a while.
