The bottling setup




Taking inventory:
Fat Tire Clone and Barleywine at end of hall. Gallon of mead in closet. 5 gallon secondary is my room mate's brew. Everything I have in bottles is listed in my sig.


Tucked away in the closet for some aging:

Awesome!

I see I'm not the only one cheap enough to bottle 10g+ at once.

Bottles are just cheaper to come by right now and I think pretty convenient once I have them bottled.

Of course, I'll probably start looking into kegging after I move into my own place sometime next year... and assuming the job I have lined up is still there.

I bottled 13 gallons of wine today. I'm glad that's over! I spent almost 4 hours cleaning bottles, sanitizing, racking, filling, corking and then carrying to the cellar. Then, I decided to rack 6 gallons of rhubarb wine since I had everything all out. I cleaned one keg, and am now taking a break, having my first beer of the day. (I did "sample" some of the wines earlier, though).

I didn't even think about taking pictures- thanks for doing that. The pictures are great to see.

that looks like a lot of work. i've bottled a total of 11 beers(yes i cant count. i wanted to bottle a 12 pack, and i missed one)

i've been kegging everything, but that makes it way too easy for people to come over and just pour one, then i'm all out. i love your stock pile there.

very jealous over here

That is VERY impressive. I bottled 10 gallons once and was worn out.

I've gotta ask though, Belgium Pale Ale? Why not Belgian? Is that like India Pale Ale instead of Indian? I say Belgian because I'd say American or English Pale ale instead of England Pale Ale.

I really enjoy seeing other people's brewing operations. Gives me ideas for my own setup too.
