bottle priming

Recommended Posts

When bottling does it matter when you put the priming sugar in. Mr. beer says to put it in before the beer but it seems to disolve better when you do it after.

I'd do it before as sometimes, adding sugar to a bunch of beer can trigger a foam up reaction.

+1. Sugar granules create nucleation points that allow the CO2 to come out as foam (or something science-y like that). It's more apparent in beers with more residual CO2 I believe, so the colder you ferment, the more likely you are to have an issue I'd think. You don't need to worry about dissolving the sugar. It will work going in first and the yeast will find it in any event.
