This is what I do when I bottle as well. I don't shake the living hell out of the keg, but I give it a gentle swirl. It's a super cool process for bottling.Plus you don't need sugar?
I have had good luck just adding priming sugar to the keg, racking beer on top seal, purge, and here's the cool part, shakeing the living ell out of it to distribute the sugar. Then I push to bottles with co2.
Brewing a Hefe tomorrow that I call Clove Grove Hefeweizen and bottling my Irish Red Head in the morning. It's friction cold here in Colorado Springs. I like brewing in the winter time cause the ground water going through my immersion chiller is so cold.How is it in Colorado Springs? It's 8F here in eastern Iowa and snowing. I brewed a helles today and the tap water got my 4 gallons of wort down to 50 in about 20 minutes. I love it!
I have nothing to contribute but that was funny!S, I picture you writing this in a velvet smoking jacket while puffing on a Cohiba Esplendido and sipping Old Rip Van Winkle.
I do not smoke. Heck, I barely drink these days.
given the lack of specific denial can we assume the velvet smoking jacket is on target?
I need to add some sort of pick-up to the inside of my bucket. The current bucket I have is from MoreBeer and the spigot sucks. It requires the hole to be drilled way above the bottom or else the spigot would hit the floor. I have to have my lady lift and tip for me. I thought about using a corny, but most of my bottled batches are more than 5 gallonsI use a keg for my bottling "bucket". Works very nicely.
I don't see how half pints would cut into profits. I fully to expect to pay a little over 1/2 the price of a full pint of beer when I get a half pint. I realize there are extra glasses to be cleaned and fills for the bartenders to pour. I really don't mind paying a little more per oz. Some places get downright offended if you ask for a half pint though.Yes they do. I had a manager at a local brewery get pissed at me because I asked for a half fill on my mug, for which I am a mug club member of their brewery. I couldn't believe it...why is it such a big deal? It turned me off a bit and I don't go to the brewery so much anymore. It's sad. He was being a dick about it.
Thought of another thing that bugs me alittle... I don't like when breweries or craft beer bars don't sell half pints. I really do enjoy a half pint much more than a pint typically. Mainly because I had have more variety.Me and my girlfriend were talking about this just last night. It's a great idea. Russian River does it, and that's super awesome. Some people, like her, have a lower tolerance and don't want a full pint all the time. And for those of us that do have a higher tolerance, it's nice too to experience different kinds without having to get a flight. 8 ounces of beer is about the right amount to get a full experience on a beer, I think. Flights don't give you enough for that experience.
