I would, however,...

FTW :cross:



I kept the splashing to a minimum by only opening the spigot about halfway and pouring sideways down the side of the bottle. Imperfect, but it got the job done.

(While bottling) "Where is all this blood coming from?"

I had a fun time bottling a batch of beer today, I finally got to packaging my Rhizome IPA, the only beer I was able to make with my freshly grown / picked hops.

I'm guessing this is what they mean by 'efficiency'

For some strange reason, I've been getting much lower Starting Gravity numbers than I'm expecting. Most recently, I used 12 lbs of grain (and 3 lb of turbinado sugar), and got a SG of 1.040 for 5...
