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 1.005@78F (1.007 corrected) before the priming solution was added. ABV is calculated at 6.1%. Yield was was 54 Bottles.
