Bottling the Beer

Bottling was a learning experience.
As is all of this blog, of course.

First thing I learned was it's very hard to prep the next bottle with a sugar drop while the one is filling. The thing to do, it transpires, is to prep all the bottles then fill them.

Something which didn't help this process was the needle valve was not able to stop 100% of the beer. It did drip somewhat.

Anyway, bottles filled... lids on tight... storing at room temperature for a week then it'll be moved to somewhere cooler for at least a week.

Next time will be the opening and tasting!
