I recently got myself a tapcooler which I have yet to use.
Though I started kegging my beers some time ago, I still bottle condition some batches (I often keg and bottle the same batch if I brew more than 5G). I usually bottle directly from the fermenter, adding priming sugar to each bottle.
Now I am wondering if I could use my tapcooler (with the keg connector) even when bottle conditioning, to further minimize oxygen exposure. That would probably mean getting a pressure rated fermenter (I ferment in an anvil bucket and carboys at the moment).
I thought this time I’d ask for some insights before making yet another impulsive buy
Would I get considerable gains in shelf life this way or would it be overkill? Has anyone ever tried bottling this way?
