I never bottle because it is such a PIA. While we are avoiding winter weather in Florida with limited space I have still been kegging with 2 kegs, priming them and serving with a jockey box. Not the ideal set up. That and the closest source of Co2 is 50 miles away and very expensive. Plus somehow my 5lb tank used 4lb (I weighed it while full) for one keg and cannot find any leaks.
So here is my latest great idea. I bought 30 740ml PET bottles with caps. That’s about 25oz each. So I figure I can add 2 Domino Dots to each (thanks to our departed friend Flars) dump the trub from my bucket that has a valve and simply attach a hose and fill right from the fermenter.
I’m hoping it will be easy enough that I can bottle and stick some in the fridge rather than having to fill the jockey box with ice every day and drive a long way for CO2. The Co2 is in Key West so that part can turn out to be a fun day though.
Sound like a plan?
