Bottles being washed and sanitized.
Sifening the beer from one bucket to another
This past week the beer had finally fermented to the point that it could be bottled. All I can say is, this beer making thing is quite labor intensive and time consuming...I hope it tastes good! So now it is in 53 bottles back in our bathroom for a couple of more weeks. Then they will go to the basement where it is even colder for the remainder of their time (4 weeks.) By middle March we should be able to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
I am so excited to be planning a beer tasting party for the beginning of April. I am already assembling a menu of tasty treats to go along with the brew. Mike is going to design a little invitation.
