Winter Brown Ale – Bottling Day

Category: Winter Brown Ale — Josh @ 10:29 pm

12/01/2006 – Day 19 – Bottled beer. Calculated priming sugar needed using this webpage

A Primer on Priming

I chose volume of CO2 2.6. I want this beer to be carbonated. I have kept the beer at 68F in the temp controlled freezer, and calculated that I needed 5 oz of corn sugar. I mixed corn sugar with .5 gallons of water to make up for the wort lost in fermentation. Boiled the mixture for 15 minutes let cool and used this to prime the beer for bottling.

FG 1.024 @ 70F – 1.025 corrected – 2.4 % ABV. It tastes pretty good, not what I was expecting though.
