The process of making beer includes adding a priming solution to the solution. The priming solution is a sweetener that consists of sugar and water. It is added at the end of the brewing process and activates the yeast to allow the beer to become carbonated. According to HowToBrew.com. the best way to prime beer is to mix the priming sugar into the whole batch prior to bottling--this ensures that all the bottles will be carbonated the same.
Things You'll Need
- 3/4 cup corn sugar
- Bottling bucket
Boil 2 cups of water and add 3/4 cup corn sugar.
Pour the priming sugar into a bottling bucket containing beer.
Stir with a sanitized spoon to mix the priming sugar evenly into the beer. Stir gently and avoid disturbing the sediment too much.
Wait half an hour for the priming solution to diffuse and the disturbed sediment to return to the bottom of the bucket.
Siphon the beer into bottles.
