APA Bottled

Category: APA — Josh @ 9:38 pm

I bottled the APA today. I targeted 2.7 Vols of CO2 for carbonation. With a beer temperature during bottling of 69F, I calculated that I would need to 5.5 ounces of corn sugar for 5 gallons of beer. The priming solution was made with 2 cups of water plus the corn sugar. The sugar and water was boiled for 10 minutes, then cooled in an ice bath down to 60F. FG of the beer was [email protected] (1.007 corrected) before the priming solution was added. ABV is calculated at 6.1%. Yield was was 54 Bottles.
