Glass bottling question

Recommended Posts

Well, my Canadian Blonde/Pale LME is about ready to bottle (3 weeks in LBK). So far I've been using the standard MR.B plastic bottles.  I bought some 1/2L glass bottles. Is there anything I should be aware of other than cleaning/sterilizing? I'll be bottle priming using Domino Dots cubes. 

Thanks, Bob

Sanitizing, not sterilizing.

Make sure you also sanitize the caps.  And remember to leave headroom in the neck.  Most people use 1/2 to 3/4 of the Mr. Beer recommended levels of carbonation.  There are TWO sizes of Domino Dots, so make sure you know which you are using.

I used the wrong terminology. The package says each cube is 1/2 tsp. So it's no different than using the PET bottles. I was thinking there may be more to it than that.  OK. Sounds like I need to bottle. I'll be leaving about an inch up the neck open.

Thanks. 

Bob
