Bottlers do you pour the priming trub when serving?
« on: November 12, 2009, 10:05:56 PM »
I was wondering, do you pour the entire contents of bottled homebrew including the priming trub?  I used to but lately have gotten to a place where I leave the trub in the bottle.

I usually decant off of the sediment.  I'm flatulent enough without adding that. :-*
Beer...Now there's a temporary solution!

It depends on the beer and my mood, but I do find myself going in the same direction as you and pouring it out less and less.

If it's a clear beer then I'll decant the beer into the glass then swig the bottom from the bottle.

Otherwise, it's probably a 50/50 chance what I'll do.

Not usually, no.  If I've already had a few, the pouring can get a little sloppy  :-[ and when I'm camping and too cheap to buy beer, I'll just drink it right outta the bottle  :o

Well, as opposed to krystalweizen.  Hefe = yeast was my point.

And, as someone previously mentioned, when I don't pour the last 1/2 inch from the bottle, I usually swig it  :-*
