Bottled Tonight
 
I just bottled my Pete's Wicked Ale clone from AHB. I used the 1 % alcohol boost in the brew, and my FG before priming was 1. 011. The smell was good. I drank the bit from the gravity test, and the flavor was nice. I'm looking forward to mid January!
Oh, this was only my second batch of beer, and it was my first time using an auto siphon. Let me just say a big THANK YOU to my brother, Beer4breakfast, for sending that. It made racking to the bottling bucket much easier than my first batch was.

I love the auto siphon. It works so go!!! Glad your beer turned out!

The worst thing about homebrewing - waiting for it to condition:mug:

I just bought an auto siphon and it was probably the best ten bucks I've ever spent!

Truly. My first brew is down to 4 6packs (started with 49 bottles). By the time this batch is ready, those'll be gone (unless I ration well and buy some commercial brews, which is the plan). I want to get to a point where I can have my choice of 3 or 4 of my own home brews at any time. Guess I'd better get another batch going soon!

Keep brewing for a while. I've got an Irish Red in the primary, a coffee stout in the secondary, and a 3 gallon batch of Apfelwein in the primary as of tonite.

Hard to keep up with myself! :)

If I'm ever in Manitoba, I know where to go for a drink!
