Bottle It!

Homebrew #2 is in the bottles!

Here she is in the secondary just before bottling… mmm, hoppy goodness! Love that green color!

Data on this one:

Type: Double IPA via Northern Brewer.

Declared Timeframe: 3 months.

Brew Day: July 6, 2012

Racked to Secondary: July 11, 2012

Dry-Hopped: September 7, 2012

Bottled: September 13, 2012

Yield: 46 bottles (just under 5 gallons)

First open: projected for October 6, 2012

We’ll see about that… I’ll probably sample it after a week or so in the bottles. I’ll report back on the glory, for sure.

Here’s a shot of the 46th bottle – I’ve indicated the final bottle of this session with a daub of black paint. I charged this last bottle – and the last bottle from my previous brew – with a bit of the gunk from the dregs of the carboy. Gotta bite those hops!
