Next time you bottle try and attach your bottling wand directly up to your bottling bucket using about 2 inches of tubing. Then you can put the bucket on your kitchen counter above your dishwasher leave the washer open so it catches any spills and then instead of having someone hold the wand it will just hang there and you bring the bottle to the wand instead of bringing the wand to the bottle. Check out the pic.

This is the best way to go. I just put a bucket at my feet to catch the drops though instead of dishwasher door. Then you can just sit in a chair, empties on the left, and place them full on the counter on the right. Best decision I ever made for bottling - teaching swmbo to operate the capper. She is usually a good sport about it, but when she refuses I just find a friend who likes beer. A few free bottles to take home with him for the help usually convinces someone.

Ok, I opened another beer. I poured the beer into the glass very quickly. Head was good and creamy and very hoppy smelling and tasting.Now I have to wait at least 2 more weeks.

Ok,open the reply window on here. Have your recipe open in another tab. Click on that tab,then go to the link window at the top of the browser. Left click on the link once to highlight it. Then right click on it,and a lil window pops up. Left click on the word "copy",then click the tab for this site. At the the top of the reply window theres a world symbol with a chain link across it. Click on that,& put the cursor in the lil box. Right click it,then left click "paste". Then just hit ok on the lil window & it should post. If it doesn't post,then open the "edit" wimdow,& look at the body of the link. This site puts in "HTTP://". The other site does too,putting it in twice in two places. Look for where you see it one after the other,& use the "backspace" key to erase one of them in both spots. The link will now post. BUT! Don't do this with image codes,or it won't work.

The beer is better then most of the big beer makers out there! to bad it takes so long from start to finish to get to drink the beer! I had one person on the block try the beer and wanted to pay me. He said it was better then any of the beers he has bought in the stores! So the next beer well be the Dead Ringer IPA by Northern Brewer, we are looking 6 weeks to drink time!!
