I've made up some priming sugar cans using an pressure canner. Yes, I do the sterilization process, [email protected] (15 minutes at 15 lbs pressure). It makes bottling day a lot faster and easier. I've already got the canner hot from canning starter wort and sterile water for rehydrating yeast, so it's nearly no work at all to add a few jars of sugar water.

In just started doing it myself. Got tired of boiling and cooling syrup. It doesn't save a ton of time in the bottling process but it certainly makes it more enjoyable.

Do you sterilize(autoclave) the sugar mixture? Or do you just boil it jar it?
