... or because I can't be bothered washing yet another containerGulf Brewery said:Because most people have "always done it that way". Just make sure that the priming sugar is mixed evenly through the beer in the bottling bucket without splashing the beer.Mark blower said:Thanks Pedro,
If bulk priming is that easy why do people bother with the measuring and mess of putting suger into the bottles?
Also when bulk priming you need to know the quantity of beer you actually will bottle, to avoid over-priming.
If you bottle from secondary, chances are you'll have some sediment you'll want to leave behind, so you'll have to keep that in mind for your calculations. If you're CCing, you don't know exactly how many liters you have, so in some cases like stout you may end up with more carbonation than the style requires.
But yeah, mainly, CBF sanitising before and cleaning afterwards another bucket, that takes about as long as putting priming sugar into the bottles anyway ... I put all the bottles on a table and put the sugar in one after the other, very quick
