It's at just about 3 weeks total.  I'm going to try and hold out for 4 weeks.

That sounds like a lot of brew!

Hmmm.  Let's see.  I have 4 x 5G light lagers in primary, 5 x 5G ales kegged and conditioning, 2 on tap, 2 lagers in the fridge ready to go, the barlerywine ready to bottle and 4 cases of various high gravity brew.  I gues you are right now that I add it up!   ;D

I wracked to an clean sanitized co2 purged keg containing my priming sugar and .5 packets rehydrated yeast (if you do not have access to kegs you can skip to the next section)
I sealed the keg up, gave it a couple good shakes rattle roll to mix everything well
Then I bottled with a bottling wand stuck in the end of the cobra tap.

I bottled today.  Cleaned and sanitized a keg, racked the Barleywine, added 3/4 cup of corn sugar, rehydrated 1/2 packet of US-05 and added.  Purged the headspace with CO2, turned down the pressure to about 5psi and filled bottles with my new growler filler that hooks up to my tap. 

This was by far the most enjoyable bottling experience I ever had.  Great idea!  This is now my new process whenever I bottle!


Cool! glad to here it went so well.
