Manual Beer Bottling Equipment: How It Works
When you’ve finally got to that last stage of the homebrewing process, you should have your siphon ready to go in your bottling bucket. The beer’s already primed, and what you need is just get it into the bottles.
A typical bottling process goes like this:
- Sanitize your bottle filler and attach it to the hose by running it directly into the hose. Bottle fillers are spring-loaded so it won’t start filling until you push down on it
- Grab an empty beer bottle, place it on the floor and put the bottle filler right into it
- Open the clip on the bottle filler so that the beer could flow until it fills up the bottle. You should leave about an inch of headspace at the top of the bottle when pulling out that bottle filler. Overfilling the bottle leads to the insufficient amount of carbonation. Underfilling, on the other hand, will lead to too much carbonation
- Take a pre-sanitized beer bottle cap and place it on top of the bottle. Then, take a bottle capper, stick it on the top as well, and then push down on it to safely seal the bottle. Done!
- Repeat the whole process (steps 1 through 4) until you’re out of beer
However, that’s not the end of the brewing itself. Now that you’ve got your beer bottled, you have to wait for 2-3 weeks for it to carbonate. After that, you can enjoy your own homebrewed beer!
The home beer bottling equipment we used here is a siphon, bottle filler, and a capper. In addition to that, we also have bottling spigots of ⅜’’ nozzle and 5/16-3/8'’ nozzle.
