Stir wort just before bottling for carbonation?

Recommended Posts

First time brewer. Bottling day came and I noticed there was an accumulation at the bottom of the keg which turns out is natural. I stirred the wort and then proceded to bottle. I fear I may have screwed up in stirring the wort. Any feedback on the issue would be appreciated. Any upsides to not stirring vs. stirring? Thanks.

Do NOT stir the wort. You can aerate it. You can roust the yeast creating the potential for bottle bombs. And you don't want all that yeast in your bottles. There is no upside, only downside.

Follow the directions, and do some reading.

Do not stir the keg! Step back from the spoon!  Consider everything RickBeer said repeated,.

I understand you are a newbie...what info did you read about or what propelled you into stirring the fermented wort in your LBK prior to bottling? FYI, please don't do it again or you won't be long in the homebrewing hobby!!!

If nothing else, you just added a bunch silt to your beer.

Or you just created a whole lot of yeast starters for future batches. Not that far off the Papazian method for culturing yeast.
