I have recently (last 5 batches) begun to stir the bottling bucket just prior to using the wand ...

Theory that the priming sugar may collect too much at the bottom by the time I am finished racking ....

So - anyone else do this ? My goal is consistent carbonation, which I am now getting ..

Of course, kegs ARE in my future !

^^Same.

I put the priming solution into the bucket and rack into it, making sure that the hose is angled so it kind of 'whirlpools'. Seems to work fine.
