Just an update on this. Just drunk the last bottle; it turned out great :)

I'm currently doing a brown ale. The OG was 1.045 and the FG is supposed to be 1.010-1.012. It
had a good thick layer of foam on top for the first few days (we started it last Tuesday), I'd
say the am...

It's carbonated fairly well at the moment as I've had a few small bottles to test. The
instructions are below; I actually had to refer to a previous set of instructions for the
temperature of a 'cool ...

I've recently finished a batch of homebrew (bottled 2 weeks ago) and it said that once bottled,

Yeah, pretty much 200g of caster sugar into 5 gallons. It was fermented at 68-70 and the

I decided to bottle my Woodfordes Wherry in the early hours (so I wouldn't be dominating the

So yours were at about 73-77°F for a few days and mine are a bit cooler than that.Either way
you had no problems with the glass bottles though during this bottling of your first batch?They
were stiff ...

Thanks again for your help, everyone. The beer came out very nicely and is now nearly all gone
Posted in thread: 1 Day Bottled & Plastic Bottles Stiff Already on 12-26-2012 at 02:02 PM
I used a mixture of glass and plastic bottles to bottle my first brew, all the plastic bottles
got stiff rather quickly, and got stiffer and stiffer, to the point where I could get no flex
