Hey Everyone,

Newbie here...is there anyway to tell after you have bottled your brew
wether or not it is carbonating?  Can you see airbubbles like you can in in
the airlock?

Thanks



Re: Fermenting in Bottle
hi J.  after a week or two you should not be able to see through the bottom
of the bottle anymore because of the sediment. If it is still clear as when
you bottled it wount be carbonated.
open a test bottle and pour yourself a glass;this is the best way.

when using PET bottles you can feel how firm the bottle becomes as the gas
increases the pressure inside.

I've heard it suggested that during bottling, fill one 12 oz plastic soda
bottle with the as yet uncarbonated beer.  Use it as the "test" bottle to
check for carbonation, as Michael says.

I am new to brewing so some of the experienced here may not agree but I have
found that 2ltr soda bottles make great bottling containers. I can usually
just squeeze the bottle to get an idea of how it is carbonating.
Even the 16oz sized bottles are good to use for testing the readiness.

Uh, why?  What's the problem?  I don't use plastic bottles for
everything ( I usually keg) but for those times I go whitewater rafting
and want to take some homebrew along, plastic is a far better choice
than glass.
