Bottled my beer

Sat bottle my Irish Red. I had to leave it in the 2 ferm for an extra week (3weeks) due to other respondsibilities. I ended up with 2 bottles short of 2 cases. When I bottled, I used raw sugar. I measure out sugar for each bottle. That was something new to do. I also forgot how much time consuming it was.

Wow… 46 individual measurements would drive me nuts. Any reason you didn’t bulk prime in the bottling bucket?

You will be getting kegs soon.

I had little luck with carbonation in bottles. It was inconsistent, some co2 and some not, the reasoning for kegging. I would add the sugar to the bucket, stirred it, waited a little, and bottle. I am not sure what was doing wrong and lack of confidence. I have been brewing for 4-5 years. I will say, that I do add little sugar in my keg.

Yeah, this is on my mind a lot…
It’s more about getting everyone to rinse their bottles…

“He who rinses gets more beer” teach that mantra to your pals

Just use dominos sugar dots each dot weights 2.9 grams, the sugar calc. will tell you 2.7 grams per bottle. I use them every time I bottle, normally just bottle the first 12 then keg the rest.
