Packaged Allotment Riot

22.0℃ bottling sugar

This has been cold-crashing in the fermentation fridge for 11 days now and as I need it tomorrow for Mostly Maris I‘m going to have to turf it out, not that the Riot looks any clearer than it did when it went in.

After racking to a clean vessel I stirred in 550g of Xylitol / Erythritol and 150g of brewing sugar, all dissolved in about half a litre of boiling water, then racked to sanitised bottles using the cane in the normal manner. We have:

  • 19 x 500 ml brown crown caps (silver)
  • 6 x 1000 ml PET screw-tops
  • 9 x 750 ml clear flip-tops

These were then moved to the server room for conditioning, where they‘re sitting at about 22 ℃.
