I'll be bottling my first batch of beer next week. I'm curious about the logistics of this given the equipment I have. The 5 g batch is currently in the primary fermentation bucket. I planned to skip the secondary fermentation in a carboy due to all the advise I've read.
How do I mix in the priming sugar on bottling day?
Do I rack the beer out of the primary into small bottling bucket I have (only about 2 gallons in size). Once in the small bottling bucket I could mix in the reduced amount of priming sugar. Then repeat this a few times.
Or do I rack to a larger 5 g bucket/carboy with no spigot, and mix in the priming sugar at at once. Then just siphon out into the bottles.
Or I could mix the sugar directly into the primary, which seems like it would end up mixing in a lot of the sediment at the bottom.
