I eyeball my bottling. It seems larger air gap means more time required to age. Am i imagining this?
Age, as in flavor, or age as in carbonation? carbonation would actually make sense as it would take long beer to “pressurize”. Flavor... I’m not sure
I've noticed that underfilled bottles seem to have higher pressure inside - don't know why.
Not sure where I read this but i remember seeing that leaving too much air space in bottles will create higher carbonation because there is more O2 ? for the yeast to use up. Also higher risk of launching bottles from over carbonizing.
I fill my bottles until the beer hits the top and when I take out wand have just right amount in bottle.
Makes sense. I don't keep underfilled bottles any more. They just oxidize.
