Sugar is water soluable, and won't settle out of suspension. I would bottle it just the way the Mr. Beer instructions say. Where's revvy? He's our resident Mr. Beer expert.

Thanks guys. I'll add the sugar directly to the bottles this time, that seems to be the consensus.

Oh right. Basic science. It would have to be saturated to do so.

How do people get uneven carbonation from bottle to bottle? Is it just not mixed enough? I never had a problem with bottling, but I moved to kegs pretty quick, so I guess I never explored that issue because I never had it.

uneven carbonation from bottle to bottle comes from not stirring you sugar priming solution into your beer before you bottle it. I put the priming sugar solution into the bottling bucket then rack on top of that to bottle and it works great.

I was driving to work...it is the first week of MedSchool...So my waking up at "zero dark thirty" is "Zero Dark on the hour." And I'm starting work at 7:30 am all week...

What's the question?

Oh yes, mr beer and bottling..

I recommend racking from the mr beer to another spigoted container, adding sugar syrup and bottling from there like in regular batches...A hardware store bucket and plastic spigot is cheap, but any container with a spigot will work, a 2-3 gallon cooler, anything really... When I used to brew with it, I attached a 1/2" rubber tube to the spigot of the mr beer and racked it to a cooler, then attached the rubber hose to the spigot on the cooler and then bottled from there...

The point is, getting it off the yeast and getting the priming solution mixed.
