Bottling

We brewed (and by “we,” I mean “Chris”) an IPA on March 16th, and this was bottling weekend. After stashing away bottles for a month, we had a nice supply. Chris spent the last week boiling and scrubbing:

We tried a little of the flat beer and, priming sugar aside, it was tasty! Definitely an IPA: nice and hoppy, and very drinkable. Next up, maybe a porter?
