Premaking Priming Solution
« on: December 22, 2016, 10:17:31 AM »
In order to save time, I made my priming sugar solution the night prior to bottling.  I put the solution in a sanitized mason jar.  Then let to cool to room temperature naturally.  Should I expect any carbonation issues?

Greetings squad - if I understand your question, you're saying you made your priming solution, placed it into a starle jar, placed it in the refrigerator and will use it for priming a day or two later?  My opinion is that should be fine.

I've done this many times and have had no issues with carbonation differences between priming solution made the night before and that made just before bottling.  I sanitize the mason jar and lid and pour the solution while boiling right after turning the stove off.
