Homebrew Bottling

Packaging beer is the final step in home brewing. Beer bottling is such a laborious task that many home brewers resort to kegging, especially if they are making beer for private consumption. What makes bottling beer tedious is that there are many things that you need to consider before doing this. For instance, you need to make sure that the specific gravity reading is uniform for two or three days apart. This is to ensure that the beer will not undergo over carbonation which can result in the explosion of the bottles due to immense internal pressure.

Another thing that you need to consider are the bottling materials. You need to get enough packaging materials to store your beer so that you can have an uninterrupted workflow. However, once you have the things that you need, your work does not stop there. (more info below)
