Beer Brewing Guide - Step 7: Bottling

Beer Brewing Guide - Step 7: Bottling

Bottling

Bottling beer requires care and precision. After fermentation, the beer is filled into cleaned bottles. Food, sugar or carbonation drops are added to these bottles to enable secondary fermentation and thus CO2 formation in the bottles.

Unpressurised bottling (secondary fermentation in the bottle)
A bottling tube is perfect for unpressurised bottling. The tube enables almost foam- and oxygen-free bottling by filling from the bottom of the bottle. It fits every drain tap of the Braumarkt fermentation buckets and is otherwise easy to attach with hoses to all non-pressurised fermentation and filling containers. 
Before filling the beer, make sure it is clean to avoid possible infections! Disinfect both the drain tap and the filling tube with rubbing alcohol.

Sugar/wort dosage
To ensure that the yeast still has enough nutrients available for CO2 production, we add sugar or wort to the bottles. 
If you use household sugar, you can orientate yourself around 6 to 7 g/L, whereby different beer styles have different standard CO2 contents. 
To use wort, remove part of the wort during the brewing process before adding the yeast and freeze it. When the beer is ready to be bottled, the wort is thawed again, placed in a vessel and the beer to be bottled is added. The amount of wort required can be calculated using online calculators. 
For the easiest and quickest way to carbonate your beer, you can use Carbonation Drops! These are sugar balls that are adapted to the amount of sugar in 0.33 litre bottles and save you the hassle of weighing.

Corking
When corking, make sure to spray the crown caps with rubbing alcohol beforehand to prevent infection of the beer.
Choose the right cork size for your bottles. 26mm⌀ corks fit all 0.33L and 0.5L bottles, while 29mm⌀ corks are suitable for 0.75L bottles.
You can attach a pressure gauge to one of your bottles to check the CO2 pressure build-up! When using swing-top bottles, the pressure can be released if the bottle pressure is too high by moving the lid a little. 

Filling option with CO2 pressure in the bottle
If you want to fill your bottles oxygen-free, you should use a pressurised filling system. This has the decisive advantage that oxidation in the bottles is avoided, as well as the option of bottling from a pressurised container. This means that your beer will ultimately keep for longer.
During pressurised filling, the bottle to be filled is first flushed with CO2 to remove the oxygen and set the same pressure as the beer so that it does not foam up during the filling process. The Tapcooler with its many adapters and application options or a filling system from ENOLMASTER with one or four filling heads are suitable for this.

The Tapcooler counterpressure bottle filler is an easy-to-use filling device for beer bottles. The Tapcooler ensures perfect filling of beer from a beer tap under counter pressure without loss of CO2. The Tapcooler is a compact counter pressure filler that connects to the tap and can also be connected to kegs and pressure tanks with optional adapters.

You can connect the Tapcooler to the corresponding tap or - with the optional adapter - to a beer keg. The counterpressure filler has an adjustable pressure valve that controls the pressure in the bottle and thus the filling speed. CO2 and beer are filled from the bottom of the bottle through the filler pipe. The pipe can be extended to a length of 29 cm. You can use it to fill 0.3 l, 0.5 l or even larger bottles, but with a mouth size of up to 29 mm.

Cannular Compact Canning Machine
Your own canned beer is within easy reach thanks to this easy-to-use can seamer!Canned beer has some important advantages as opposed to bottling: less risk of oxidation and 100% protected from light, so no lightstruck off-flavour due to UV rays penetrating the beer. What's more, cans offer endless possibilities for personalisation.The Cannular is a perfect choice for both advanced hobby brewers as well as nano breweries. A can is seamed in a few seconds The Cannular Compact Canning machine is also easy to use and to set up.The Cannular operates on 24V DC, a power adapter is included. Scope of delivery also includes a B-64 chuck and spacer for 50 cl Aluminum cans. The machine is ready to seal 50 cl Aluminium cans (art 5014795) out of the box. With the optional spacer for 33cl cans (art. 5014798), you can also seal 33 cl Aluminium cans (art. 5014794). ATTENTION: Braumarkt is not responsible for incompatibility with cans that were not purchased from Braumarkt. The Cannular Compact Canning machine is very easy to operate. One start/stop button and two levers is all you need to seal a can. The process is as follows: Place lid at the top of the can and place the can on the table spacer.Turn the platform lever clockwise to raise the can to the seamer.Turn on the machine with the start/stop button.Now use the second lever. First push it away from you, wait a few seconds and then pull the lever towards you. Now bring the lever back in the original position. Stop the machine with the start/stop button. Turn the platform lever counterclockwise to lower the can.Your can is now sealed. Note: we recommend filling the cans to the top so that the lid is placed on the foam, this to minimize oxidation. Specifications:Power: 250 W - 24 V (12 A) - DCRated Speed: 3,300 RPMDimensions (L x W x H): 355 mm x 230 mm x 495 mm Can Height: 45-170mmCan Diameter: 35-75mmIncluded: power adaptor and Cannular Spacer for 50 cl.Please note: When you receive your Cannular the rollers have been set and tested at the factory. They should not need adjustment for 100,000 cans. The table, however, comes unadjusted and getting it set up correctly is very important to getting a proper seal. Cannular's test show that a .4 mm (.015") actual overlap is all that is needed to seal to 90 PSI. The proper table tension takes a little practice and expect to waste a few cans getting it dialled in. Use cans at your fill height with water for proper tension adjustment. You want the tension to be tight, but not so tight as to dent the can. Once you learn the proper tension, re-adjusting it is very quick and easy.
