Carboy #1 – Bottled

Category: Porter — Josh @ 7:22 pm

I bottled carboy #1 this afternoon/evening. Beer temperature during bottling was @ 67F. I targeted 2.6 Volumes of CO2 for carbonation. This calculated out to 5.0 ounces of corn sugar for the 5.5 gallons of beer in carboy #1. The priming solution was made with 2 cups of water plus the corn sugar, boiled for 6 minutes in a small pot with a lid, then set aside and let cool in an ice bath with the lid on. FG was 1.014 @ 71.2 F (1.015 corrected) before adding the priming solution. ABV is calculated at 5.1%. Yield was 44 12oz Bottles and 6 22oz bottles (5.16gal). This tastes really good. It has a nice roasted, almost smoky flavor which fades into a sweet, hoppy, nutty, malty finish. The FG of this was spot on.


  1. So when do I get to try it?

  2. You can try it when ever you get your butt down to Florida. 😛
