Bottling Marathon

Fifteen gallons in one night . . . piece of cake, right? Well, it was about five hours of cake - delicious uncarbonated cake. The Saison du Muqunee (MB0022), Stone Soup XXI - The Mustachioed Dark IPA (MB0021) and The Original Missionary Position (MB0020) are all in glass right now. Justin took part in this grueling endurance challenge of liquid packaging. Now all we have to do is wait a couple of weeks.

Up next?? - well, we're taking another shot at the Rising Sun Ginger-Sesame Red Ale (MB0023). We're also going to do our first Rising Sun off-shoot - A Ginger-Peach Red Ale (MB0024) in honor of my wife's new jobby job.

Stay tuned. Saturday's a brew day.

Cheers,

Dave

Sounds like bottling 15 gallons of beer can be quite the experience. I've only bottled 5 gallons into 22oz bomber bottles before. Definitely not very fun to do but once it's done then it's all worth it.

It's not the bottling that isn't fun, it's cleaning and sanitizing everything that's a PITA!
