Congrats, I bottled my first brew yesterday, Caribou Slobber from NB. Not knowing what to expect while bottling, a few days earlier I did a dry run (actually wet, I used water) to run through the bottling sequence. I didn't care for the spigot method, so I used the racking cane, that kept me at standing height, no bending over. The sample tasted good, had it in the primary for 4 weeks, OG 1.053-FG 1.013. I plan on conditioning for 3 weeks, then ENJOY THE FRUITS OF MY LABOR!
