This is my second homebrew. I used a friend's siphoning equipment and bottle filler for my first batch, then got my own.
This second batch is a pumpkin spice porter. It fermented for a week, and I racked to a carboy second vessel for a week. When I was ready to bottle, I racked it to a bottling bucket with priming sugar, and then found out that the siphon hose did not fit my bottle filler.
So, I slowly used a sanitized, glass measuring cup, and would slowly put it into the beer in the bottling bucket, lift, and slowly pour beer into each bottle. I tried to keep down oxygenation.
Has anyone else ever bottled this way? If I drink soon, and not months from now, will I be ok? How soon after bottling does oxygenation appear as a flaw in the beer?
