Default Bottled an amber ale today...

My second attempt at home brewing. It tasted better than the first beer I did.

I like the perspective on that pic.

Did you go with straight corn sugar, or try your luck with the maple syrup?

i was trying to get some sunlight through the glass so i could see the color.

funny you ask about the maple syrup and sugar. lol

i had my bottling bucket on my bottom step of my deck and my secondary at the top step (so there would be no lag in my transfer tube)....my bottling bucket, because of the spout, will not sit on a flat surface....the tit is lower than the bottom of the bucket, so i had to have a ledge to let sit off.....well, i brought the boiled corn sugar water outside, and dumped it into my bottling bucket. i let it sit for a while and then i came back out and gave the bucket a good twirl to whirlpool it around one last time......i realized my pour spout was open and i lost some sugar water. doh! so i had to go back inside and boil some water and sugar to replace it.......completely shooting from the hip.

we'll see what happens....
