1 Gallon Brown Ale Bottling Day

Bottles of beer on the wall
Horray Beer!
Last night was time to bottle my 1 gallon of brown ale. 4 days after I brewed it, the beer had already reached a final gravity of 1.010, giving it 4.46% ABV.

I threw in half an ounce of cane sugar to prime it, hoping that it won't create any bottle bombs. From my first tastes, I can already tell that this will be a malt monster. There is hardly any hop taste at all, which is what I wanted.

The finished product settled out fast.
I'm going to try to do another batch just like this, same recipe and everything, in the next few days. For the moment though, the 9 bottles I got have about 1 week before they carbonate. Until next time, Cheers!
