Beer Bottling

Beer bottling was a bit of and adventure.  I’m lucky to have a dishwasher, so cleaning the bottles was fairly simple – especially the sterilizing part.  I can just pull a bottle up and go crazy.  The only hardship I endured was my auto siphon not going deeply enough into the carboy – it got caught in the neck.

What next occurred was a hilarious attempt to siphon using the racking cane.  I hadn’t counted on using it, so of course I had to sanitize it.  The next difficulty was finding a decent way to fill the siphoning tube – it took a while, but I finally got a good siphon going.  I’m a bit worried about oxygen levels in the bottled beer, but oh well.

The beer is bottled and working its magic  in the basement.  I’ll keep you posted.
