Last night, we bottled our beer! It ended up being only a slightly messy process, which made me glad we didn’t attempt to do the bottling in the basement, re: carpet.
The last step involves letting it condition in the bottle for at least a week. We sampled a bit of what we had left over, and it tastes exactly like a flat English brown ale, so I think it’s going to be good.
This weekend we’re going to head back to Northern Brewer and pick up supplies for a new batch! While that’s fermenting, I expect everyone to come over and drink at least two from the cases in our basement. Deal?
