Brewty and the Yeast: Part 2


Do you hear that?

That's the sound of beer. Beer that has matured and is begging to be bottled.

Who am I to refuse?

While filling beer bottles may look like happy work, there were several things that had to be done first.

Cleaning and sanitizing our bottles, for example:

Most people prefer their beer without chunky bits, so thoroughly cleaning your bottles is very important.

It's also important to feed your brewing yeast. Those little buggers have been stuck in a brew keg for the better part of a month- they're probably pretty hungry. What better treat can you think of than warm sugar water? Mmmmm....

And for a little extra bubbly boost...

Now that you've spent the better half of your day cleaning and cooking for your yeast, it's time to help them move into their new home.
