using wert as a priming solution

Postby virginbrew » Wed Apr 23, 2008 11:15 pm

I read in "The Complete Joy of Home Brewing" that you can use a portion of the wert as a priming solution. Has anyone here used this method? If you have, how well did it work? Thanks for any response! :D

I do it all the time, and it works fine. You have to take care about wort storage - satination etc. and caferully calculate the quantity used - all calculations you can find in the literature.
The technique is a bit messy and more risky than use of corn sugar, but some say beer made that way tastes better.
