beer brewing homebrewing homebrewBatch #6 is bottled!

I wasn’t sure I’d have enough time to bottle tonight, but I knew I’d have enough time to wash three dozen bottles, so I filled up the sink with warm, soapy water, got the brush down from its hook and got wet. There’s no way to wash that many bottles without getting wet.

It was just eight o’clock when I was done washing up and everything was put away. I had no idea if that left me enough time to bottle but I went for it anyway and somehow finished up just before bedtime. Timing is everything.

The brew has a crazy nose and a very sweet taste that I’m hoping will moderate after it’s had a chance a week or two condition in the bottles. Time now to finish off the dregs from the bottling bucket while I surf the internet looking for inspiration for the next batch while I wind down. Cheers!

    Neither do I, but I haven’t figured out this programming language yet. I’ll try to get it fixed this weekend.
