Bottle Conditioning

Bottle Conditioning Yeast Sediment
I’m still giddy about the portability of bottled homebrew. The real exercise is preparing the bottles: de-label, wash, rinse, and sanitize. When filling from kegs I adjust the pressure and filled with a party tap. Bottled conditioned beer gets additional priming sugar for natural carbonation and in some cases a small dose of yeast. This means stronger cleaner beer with less body.

My recently bottled Kolsch has taken new life. Bottled from the same batch; the beer is lighter and smother than its kegged twin. The bottle's advantage is also cleaner beer. The kegged beer has more fruity notes and is fuller in body with a tart finish. I like both!
