Coffee Beer

Posted by admin on Tuesday 8 January 2008

My coffee beer finished primary fermentation on Sunday so BEERmom and I spent the evening sanitizing and filling bottles. She wasn’t too excited when I bottled my first batch because I was pretty messy, so she decided to help.

Once everything was sanitized we primed each bottle with a teaspoon of corn sugar, then she handed them to me one by one. I filled them and handed them off to her to be capped, and this time I actually had enough bottles, so we didn’t have to get creative.

The batch made 63 bottles, which are now conditioning under our bar until it’s time to move them to the fridge. The recipe says they will be ready after a week, but I plan to wait at least two before seeing how they turned out.
