Bottling Simply Beer Brown Ale and Pilsener with Honey

This weekend it had been 2 weeks since starting the Simply Beer Brown Ale and Coopers Pilsner with honey home brews so it was time to transfer them from the fermentation bucket to the bottles.

It was an easy process and I managed to fill just short of 80 bottles, I probably could have squeezed out another 8 bottles but I ran out of bottles. I filled each bottle with roughly 1 teaspoon of white sugar.

I didn’t take any hydrometer readings, I know I should!

I tasted both ales and was impressed with the Pilsner as you could really taste the honey which made it quite sweet. The Brown Ale was good too, a typical ale and reminded me of the Woodfordes kits I have done in the past. I took a picture of each ale to record what it looked like into the bottles.

Now to keep the bottles warm for a week and then take them down to the shed and leave them for 3 weeks till the first tasting.
