You can keg first, let the sediment settle out for 3/4 weeks and then bottle. You do still get some sediment but only a small amount. I did this for the beer in the photos below, bottled on March 25th.Hi all.
I’ve completed a few brews now and everytime I bottle sediment settles at the bottom of the bottle. Any way of getting rid?
Best floc I've seen so far is from Nottingham. Beats S04 on that score.Something else. If you use a yeast with a high flocculation level it will settle more before bottling. This should reduce what settles in the bottle.
I just bottled a pale ale I made with Coopers ale yeast and it has the least bottle sediment of anything I've ever bottled. It seems to have packed very solid as it is difficult to disturb in the bottle. Opening one tonight to see how it pours. May become the new house yeast.
I thought S-04 was a high flocculation yeast. Not like this stuff.
Last batch I used US-05. Walking by it stirs it up in the bottle. Will never use it again. Also, it left a bunch of sediment in the bottles. Far more than S-04 even.
Yep. I quarter fill the bottle with tap water, give it a swirl and pour out. Then I fill the bottle to the top and leave it overnight. It then gets popped in the dishwasher with the breakfast dishes the next morning.Cleaning....on the day you drink the beer...rinse the bottle out under the hot tap...twice! Job done.
