Weather always seems to work against you.Had all kinds of projections that it was supposed to rain again all of today, so elected to take a day off from the shed project and handle another relatively important project. I had 10 gallons of home brew beer that needed bottling. So I got up, washed/sanitized 120 bottles, and watched a rather glorious sunny day through the kitchen window whilst cleaning said bottles. Racked the beer from fermenter #1 in to the bottling bucket. Sun's still shining. Bottled 51 bottles, capped, and in the boxes for conditioning. Sun's still shining. Brought up the second fermenter, racked it into the bottling bucket. Yep, sun's still shining. My grand daughter spray painted some stuff in the back yard and left it in the sun to dry. I'm still inside filling another 59 bottles of a new beer recipe for me to try out. Labels on the boxes, boxes stowed, mess cleaned up, now it's cloudy. Just because I was gonna go put the flashing on the second bay door, it's gotta cloud up and start raining. Can't buy a break.
From day one I never bottled. Always put the beer in five gallon soda kegs and forced carbonated. Great time saver.
I want to say I feel your pain, but can’t...no bottling experience...but someday you may feel my pleasure if you move into kegging your beer!
I need to to get back into home brewing! Enjoy!
