I have a brown ale ready for bottling and am planning on doing it tonight. Problem is, I have no desire to do it. Bottles are clean, bottling bucket is clean, bottling wand is clean, tubing is clean. All of it just needs a quick sanitation bath.

I just hate bottling and I don't have the cash to move to kegging yet. Bottling is easy, I know. I'd just rather sit on my couch and watch the world go by tonight.

And yes, I have to do it now. I hit FG early last week and decided to let it sit some more. We go to Maine on Saturday for a week of vacation and I want that beer priming while I'm away.

Somebody give me a "win one for the Gipper" speech, please.

Get up off your a$$ and bottle or I'm coming to CT to kick your butt and steal your beer. Does that motivate you?

Otherwise, I'd just tell you to wait until you get back from vacation.

Think of the brown ale you made with love...

Can't you hear it speaking to you... pleading for proper care, priming sugar.. those shiny caps, the drips... the slow path to glory!

OK, I'm getting there. But still ...
I really could use a good butt kicking or two, according to my wife.

Git your a$$ away from the computer and bottle you lazy excuse for a brewer!!!! What, you'd rather surf the web than bottle up some nice beer to be drinking a couple weeks after you get back from vacation! What kind of brewer do you think you are? Most brewers can't WAIT to try a new batch of beer!(Unless of course they believe in leaving the beer in primary for a month like me....but this isn't about me is it?) THIS IS ABOUT A DELICIOUS BROWN ALE WAITING TO BE POURED WITH A NICE, THICK HEAD AND BEAUTIFUL LACING ON THE GLASS.

It's over there in the fermenter calling "bottle me so I may give you pleasure after 3-4 weeks proper storage @ 70 degrees."

Come on Shecky, you KNOW you want to drink your new brown ale soon....Everybody else is bottling their brown ale....you do want to be part of the in crowd don't you?

Besides, chicks dig guys who bottle.

Hope that helps.

Think of it like this: put yourself in your own shoes, but the "you" from tomorrow. What will you have gained by sitting on the couch watching the world go by? Nothing. What will you have gained by bottling? Well, drinkable beer, of course!

Don't do it for you, or McK, or even for the beer. Do it for future you! He's gonna kick your ass if you don't bottle some beer for him.
