Does that 45 minutes include sanitizing bottles? Seems like just using the vinator on ~50 bottles takes me almost half an hour alone.I got my process down to about 45 minutes...but if you are just starting out it may take you a couple hours the first time...
Read this thread and use some of the ideas and over time you will pimp your process, and it will take less time.
Yes it does....go re-read my process in the first post on my bottling tips thread...What it doesn't count is post bottling cleanup...Does that 45 minutes include sanitizing bottles? Seems like just using the vinator on ~50 bottles takes me almost half an hour alone.
I'm not a big fan of it either...That's why I really tore into my process to get it down to the barest steps, and least amount of time possible...so it become merely tolerable.Nope, you're the only one, and likely a freak of nature.
I hate bottling day. I hate it like a French chef hates ketchup.
Yeah...it was actually quite peaceful in here without it...It still never ceases to amaze me why we CAN'T have a bottle thread without some doofus making a kegging reference.....aww c'mon no kegging reference yet!
Congrats to all you looney bins that find joy in bottling. It is a nice reward to sit and look at the mass of bottles when you're done, but I moved to kegs as soon as I possibly could.
I agree with llazy llama, you are a freak of nature! You are welcome to come bottle every batch I brew.I have no idea how long it takes me because i actually LOVE it. I await the day and put it on my calendar. I was just thinking, hmm maybe it does take 2 hours if i include sanitizing etc... either way, if you LOVE it and have waited patiently, it should not be a chore but a proud experience. Especially when your babies are all capped and standing tall haha. I can understand worrying about the time if you have only an hour to spare... but does anyone else actually enjoy this part of the process like me?
