Well, I bottled up batch 013, my honey based IIPA braggot that I brewed about 3 weeks ago. Lots of honey, lots of hops, lots of flavor. I figured since I had done a step by step on how I brewed my 1 gallon batches, I would do a step by step on how I bottle my 1 gallon batches. I didn't get pictures of racking it to secondary and dry hopping, but that is fairly standard. I racked to a 1 gallon glass jug and dry hopped in a muslin bag.
So on to the pictures, and as always, if you have any questions I am more than happy to answer them.
First things first, collect your beer, bottles, siphon, and sanitizer.
I pour that sugar solution into the empty, sanitized jug and then rack the beer to the new jug. Carefully leave the sediment behind.
As you rack the beer, it will swirl in your jug mixing in the priming sugar. If you are worried about it not being evenly distributed, you can gently stir the beer, but be careful to not agitate the top too much to avoid oxidation.
Now I just have to wait two weeks or so for them to carb up. I may have to stir the bottles up every once in a while to make sure they carb, but I will coax them there.
Hopefully, these posts have been helpful to people who are thinking of trying out 1 gallon batches. I will be happy to help anyone interesting in getting started with 1 gallon batches or brewing in general.
Until I brew again,
