Day 18 Bottling My First Beer!

Sterilized  all my equipment and 16 bottles/caps. Racked beer to another container.

Birth of Fawlty Brown Ale!

The SG looks like 1.002 at 71 degrees. Adjusted for hydrometer calibration makes it 1.003. With a starting SG of 1.037, that would make the ABV 4.59% This could be off a bit due to the combination of two containers, the PFB and a growler. It looks good, smells good, tastes a tad weak maybe. I don’t know, with no carbonation and no time in the bottle, it may be too soon to make a judgement. The bottling went well and I perfectly filled 12 bottles and they look good!

12 bottles filled and capped.

Should be good in time for Thanksgiving!

Cider batch #3 is bubbling in the airlock at a rate of every 6 to 7 seconds…woo hoo!
