    Is it just me or are bottled conditioned Homebrew better than kegged?

    I've recently started making 12 gallon split batches and bottling a 6 pack of each to save. I've noticed all anecdotally of course that I'm enjoying the bottle conditioned beers more. I feel the flavor is deeper and richer, the aroma is more prominent and I'm really enjoying them more than off...

    Bottle Cider in 9oz grolsch bottles?

    Hello all, I’m about ready to bottle a pear cider and I have a good supply of 9oz grolsch bottles. I plan to use priming drops, is it safe to use these smaller bottles with the drops or am I asking for trouble? Fermentation seems to have completely stopped so I’m thinking the smaller bottles...

    Lagering in the bottle

    Hello. I have a question. Lets say I brew a Kolsch which is fermented cool with ale yeast and then lagered. This beer is usually lagered in bulk, dropping the temperature of the whole fermenter once the beer is fully attenuated and have had an diacetyl rest. And packaging after that. Would...

    Question regarding my Hefeweizen recipe. Kegged too early?

    Hi, I have a simple question regarding the method I followed to brew this hefeweizen. I brewed a simple 50/50 (pilsner malt/wheat malt) hefeweizen about a week ago, O.G. was 1.050, right where I wanted it. Fermentation took place in fridge with temperature control (thermometer on bucket) using...

I bought a packet of us-05. Should I add tiny bit of yeast to each bottle or to the bottling bucket? I know it may not...

    Kegging Vs Bottling

    I've recently brewed a mango IPA using the BIAB method. It's turned out really well. Very hoppy and lovely taste. I bottled 5l of it and kept the other 10l for my keg. Ive bought a 5l keg which I've used for the first time with this brew. The beer tasted nice and had a nice head, it was just a...

    Too much priming sugar

    So I was bottling my batch of pilsner today and it went really well, too well in fact. Because when we put the priming sugar in our 330ml bottles we missed the text that said "Per Liter" and I did't see it until recently. So we put 6gr/bottle when it was soposed to be 2gr/bottle, basically 3x as...

    Bottling what to avoid?

    Hi Brewers, So I bottled few batches already. Some brews were ok to me but great to my friends. Because I am still learning I wonder if you can share what errors to avoid when bottling. I am asking after sanitization let's say with NO RINSE StarSan. For example: 1. How long we can keep...

    First Milk Stout, Do I clarify?

    Hi all, This is my first time brewing a Milk Stout, therefore using Lactose. Is it wise to clarify this brew (Gelatin), or will I end up removing the Lactose?

    Are there any difference in time when to bottle or kegging

    Hi! I'm not that experienced in brewing beer. But i have a keg. I just found out it's better to let the beer ferment another week after it has stopped bubbeling, and then bottle the beer. I heard doing this will improve the taste of the beer. Also this is to prevent the bottles from popping...
