Mr. Beer Home Brewery part 3: Bottling

1 min read

Mr. Beer really comes through with making this easy.?? After brewing my first batch of beer and two weeks of waiting patiently for it to ferment in the Mr. beer keg, I couldn’t wait to bottle it up.

Just to recap, I have half the no-rinse sanitizer left over and the gallon spring water jug I retained from brewing.? I got out a funnel for easy pouring, a measuring soon for sugar and Mr. Beer provided the rest.

Simply fill the bottles, give a good shake with the lid on, and a ten minute rest in the sanitizer is all you need.? I also took this time to sanitize my measuring spoon.

Next a bit of sugar for the yeast to feed on and therefore carbonate the beer during bottle conditioning.

Filling the bottles was easy, but a bit time consuming.? Bring a chair! The tap on the brew keg is not the fastest I’ve ever seen a spigot go, which in this case is a god thing- you don’t want too much foaming up when you’re trying to fill a bottle.

All done!? now for a week or two of bottle conditioning, and a few days in the fridge, and I’ll be ready to have my first taste, of my very first brewing experience.? Thank you Mr. Beer!
