Bottling

 Bottling a batch of beer without certain equipment can be a time consuming affair. Following the guide below will see the whole process made much easier, in fact it will be a breeze.

Equipment needed:-

Bottle Tree 45 or 81 bottles

Rinser

NBS No Rinse Saitiser 250 or 500ml

Bottling Stick

Tap with Sediment Trap 

Bench Top Crown Capper

Half Teaspoon measure

Small plastic funnel

All bottles should be rinsed immediately after use to avoid any yeast deposits drying on, this is then very difficult to remove. They should then be stored on the bottle tree ready for use.

 I have found the best place to bottle is over the kitchen sink, this allows for any spillages (there will be some!) to drain down the sink. Place the fermenter so that the tap is over the sink and high enough allowing easy access with the bottle. This should be set up first so it gives the beer time to settle after movement.

Next sterilise the bottles. Mix 1.5ml of NBS No Rinse Sanitiser to a litre of water and add to the rinser. Starting at the bottom take each bottle off, give it a couple of squirts with the rinser then place back onto the tree.

Once all of the bottle are done it’s time to add the sugar. Take every bottle off the tree and stand them in lines, I find about 10 in a row works best. Through experimentation I also find it best to use standard table sugar at a rate of ½ a teaspoon per 500ml bottle.  Using a funnel with most of the spout cut off will make adding the sugar much easier.

Once all of the bottles are dosed with sugar sanitise the bottling stick using the rinser and attach it to the tap. Count out however many crown caps are needed and add them to the reservoir on the rinser. Fill the bottles in batches of 10 and cap right away.

Don’t forget to thoroughly clean all equipment before it has the chance to dry.

 

By following the above method a batch of 40 bottles should be complete in about 30 minutes with little fuss
