Place the fill tube of the bottling bucket or bottle filler at the bottom of the bottle. Fill slowly at first to prevent gurgling and keep the fill tube below the waterline to prevent aeration. Fill to about 3/4 inch from the top of the bottles.

How much sugar does it take to prime a 750ml bottle?
Generally it’s two drops per 750ml bottle.
When should I bottle homebrew?
This is why many brewers give beer at least two weeks before bottling, but sooner than 2 weeks is ideal for hoppy beers and wheat beers, which are brewed to be drank quickly. You won’t get to take full advantage of the clean up phase, but highly hopped beers begin to lose characteristics quickly.
How many 750ml bottles are needed for 5 gallons?
In general, 2 cases (24 bottles) of 750 ml bottles will be needed for each 5 gallon batch of wine. Used wine bottles are fine as long as they are clean and sterilized before use.

What can you bottle beer in?
Fill your bottles: The best way to bottle is to use a bottle filler attached by a short length of tubing to your bottling bucket’s spigot. Fill your bottles so as to leave about 3/4 inch of headroom at the top of your beer bottle.
How much sugar do you need to prime beer bottles?
Prepare your priming sugar. We add a priming solution just before bottling to provide carbonation to the beer in the bottle. Boil 3/4 cup (4-5 oz by weight) of corn sugar or 2/3 cup (3.8-4.8 oz by weight) of cane sugar in two cups of water. Cover the pan and allow it to cool.
How much sugar do you need to prime a beer barrel?
Dissolve 3.5g/L of sugar in some boiling water and allow to cool. Add this to the barrel. Syphon the beer from the fermenter into the barrel, do this as gently as possible to avoid additional air getting into the beer as this will cause the beer to oxidise and go stale quickly.
Can you use regular sugar for priming beer?
You can prime your beer with any fermentable that you want. Any sugar: white cane sugar, brown sugar, honey, molasses, even maple syrup can be used for priming. Simple sugars don’t have this cosmetic problem and the small amount used for priming will not affect the flavor of the beer.
What happens if you bottle homebrew too early?
Bottling too early could result in broken bottles: messy, chain-reactive, and possibly dangerous. Bottling a little early could result in naturally carbonated beer if you apply precision focus.
Can I bottle beer after 2 weeks?
Ales are usually ready to bottle in 2-3 weeks when fermentation has completely finished. There should be few, if any, bubbles coming through the airlock. Although 2-3 weeks may seem like a long time to wait, the flavor won’t improve by bottling any earlier.
Can you drink homebrew before bottling?
So, can you drink your homebrew beer before bottling? Yes, it is perfectly safe to taste your beer at any stage of the brewing process. Just before bottling, your homebrew has already gone through every change necessary to turn it into beer and you will simply be tasting warm, flat beer.
