First ever brew currently in primary. I have been SO nervous about it for the past couple weeks hoping it’ll turn out drinkable and not a waste of money and time. The next hurdle is bottling, and was wondering if sticking with priming sugar or using the fizz tabs would result in a more consistent finish. I have read some poor reviews about the tabs leaving parts of undisolved casing in the bottom of bottles but I don’t think that’d be too big a nuisance. So for my purpose as a first timer, what would be recommended? Should I be worried about poor or inconsistent finishes using priming sugar?
Also I’ve read a couple people have had trouble with the gold bottle caps that come with the essential starter kit. Should I buy better caps or are they just fine for the most part?
