Just finished bottling my first brew. Went really well thanks to all the advice given on the forums. Thanks all! Now the wait for carbing and maturing.

What kind of container are your bottles in? I haven't seen that in the U.S. but looks really handy.

Are those 12oz. bottles? Did you ferment 5 gallons or were you under? Loss due to hydrometer readings?

I'm just asking because I will be bottling next week. I was expecting ~50 12 oz. bottles.

We usually get 48/12oz bottles out of 5 gallons. Looks nicely done. Haven't lived on Sterns rd for years,& that was before I480 & the shopping center on the corner was a huge red barn & horse pasture...

They are plastic crates similar to what they use to deliver bread. I found them on cragslist in the Akron, OH area. I doubt the guy still has some but I could check for you.

They are great! They hold 54 regular style bottles perfectly.
