Northern Brewer Prime Dose
« on: November 09, 2014, 02:10:38 PM »
Any one try these? I have 5 gallons of barley wine sitting in a keg I brewed last march in my basement. I want to bottle and was gong to rack into another corny keg and dose with priming sugar and go from there but it sure would be easy to just bottle right off the keg.

What, no "This topic has been moved: Duplicate"?  :D

I haven't used them but the description says they also include yeast.  If you're looking for a truly one-step priming solution, that's kind of cool.

It's also funny (to me at least) that the linked thread asks the same question but has been hijacked by the third post.   ;D

Short answer:  I don't think anyone has tried them.

I planted the seed that started the hijack with my Northern Brewer review skepticism. I did try to steer it back on topic.

I'm new to this forum but have been on NB for a bit and haven't heard much good about prime dose.  No personal experience, but here is one of the recent threads I looked at.  Chunks of capsule that won't dissolve would disappoint! http://forum.northernbrewer.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=123418

Thanks for the info, and welcome.

I guess you could pull apart the capsule and drop the contents in.  But at that point, you might as well just mix a packet of dry yeast with some sugar and drop a half teaspoon in each bottle for a tenth of the price.

Well crap. I was hoping they would work well. Thanks very much for the input. I was thinking about buying them today.
