Anyone here use Better bottles for fermenting? (www.better-bottle.com
A fairly experienced brewer I just met suggested them.
They have a lot of pluses--easy for racking and bottling and cleaning.
On the minus side they will require a bit more storage (currently I can nest my glass carboy, fermenting bucket, bottling bucket and brewpot).
I am considering a 5 gallon, if only so I can make more than 7 bottles at a time. also, how much sediment is normal? I seemed to have a lot.
I wasn't sure if you were serious, you are brewing in 1 gallon batches?
I would think 5 gallons would possibly yield less sediment to beer ratio--but more importantly, the amount of time brewing and cleaning for 1 gallon batches would probably be close to the same for 5 gallon batches.
So your time per beer would be much less.
I bottled a milk stout Monday night.
I'll pop one open tomorrow just so see how it's coming along.
