Yesterday was bottling day! M spent the morning sanitizing everything while I shot some custom print requests for my Etsy shop.
Sanitized bottles all ready to go!
I didn't get any photos of us transferring the beer from the fermenting bucket to the bottling bucket because it was quite the process. But here is what's left behing in the bottom of the fermenting bucket: a thick layer of sludge.
M is testing the alcohol content of the beer with the hydrometer.
Sanitized caps ready to go!
I had the honor of filling 47 bottles.
This was the set up. And yes, I'm in my pajamas. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon.
M was the capper, because I have no upper body strength.
Our batch made 2 cases of beer. It needs to sit in the bottles for 2 more weeks until it's ready to be tasted. Stay tuned!
