Bitter Countdown

Posted by admin on Monday 7 July 2008

After an eventful weekend, our Bitter is finally bottled and conditioning, and will be ready in another week.  I’ll spare the details of the process, because bottling this beer went exactly the same as the other 5 times.

We ended up with 72 bottles, but opened one to take the ending gravity to determine the alcohol content.  The bitter ended up darker than I thought it would, but I was aiming for an amber color anyway so I guess that counts as a success.  It is just over 5% alcohol, which is fairly strong compared to other pale ales.  It is light brown in color and seems to have a lingering aftertaste like the coffee beer.
