In this video I demonstrate how I bottle a batch of homebrew beer.
I start from first principles with preparing the priming solution and sanitising the bottling bucket all the way through to putting the finished bottles into a fermentation chamber to carbonate.
The beer style is an India Pale Ale (IPA) of my own creation which I have called “Barbed Wyre”.
The beer is bottled conditioned which the bottle equivalent of real ale. It also means that a secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle. Live yeast that is still in the beer after the primary fermentation has taken place consumes the priming sugar and produces carbon dioxide as a by product. Due to the bottles being sealed, the CO2 goes into suspension in the beer making your beer ‘fizzy’.
