Can I Bottle Chicha de Jora?

by Nathaniel

I have been wanting to make some chicha for a long time now and finally after having a few home made brews under my belt I feel that I am confident enough to attempt it.

I have done some homework on it, looked at several different websites and I feel ready to tackle it.

Then I noticed one reoccurring thing with everyone who made some, no one bottles it.

I started thinking on this. Why no one was, and could I?

So the main reason for this email is to ask you if you have tried to bottle chicha.

Do I just bottle as a normal beer with priming sugars?

Are the sugars that's in the chicha already enough so I don't need the priming?

Is it even a good idea, being that there might be to much pressure and make the tops poop?

I'm really excited to try this, but thought I would look for a little guidance from you first.

I would greatly appreciate any help you can give.
