In my previous post, by "until something better comes along" I did NOT mean kegging. I don't regard kegging as better or superior in any way. But thank you for bumping the thread.

Agreed ... I have a love/hate thing with bottling. I LOVE the fact that you do not have to worry about the beer going flat after half of it is gone. Not only that but as stated you can much more easily take bottled beer places you want versus a keg. But I HATE the bottling process compared to kegging. For those of us that have a keg but do not have all the extras like the 10lb+ bottle bottling is the way to go.

It's all relative. I had a kegerator back in the day, many years before I started homebrewing, and I don't miss it.. I don't mind bottling (particularly after reading this thread and putting some of the tips into action), and want nothing to do with all the compressed gas, hoses, taps, cleaning, and refrigeration equipment associated with kegging. Different strokes, I suppose.

Not necessarily- the pints will take a bit longer to carbonate than the 12 oz. bottles, for one thing.

LMAO!!!



For what it's worth, I'm going to go to Home Depot and pick up a 90* elbow for my bottling bucket. I did the "Revvy bottling wand mod" by cutting a very short section of tubing from my wort chiller's out feed hose (same diameter as the hose on the siphoning tube). It fits like a glove on the spigot, but the wand feels just a bit lose, but not so lose it will slide off. I ran a few tests with water with no problems, but will probably pick up a hose clamp anyways when I get the elbow for piece of mind.

Thanks Revvy!
