On Day 43 I posted a photo of me mixing the ingredients for me and Tom’s homebrew “lager” (now ale for some unknown reason). We were supposed to bottle this 10 days after putting it in the bucket but after discovering the cost of beer bottles was far greater than we ever expected, the plans went on hold.
Finally, 59 days late, we have bottled part of our beer, using old juice bottles which means it probably won’t keep for long but it saved us so much money. I’m pleased to say it tastes OK and I’m drinking a glass whilst writing this.
We sterilized the bottles, their caps and the syphon equipment and managed to successfully fill all eight bottles (all that we could find) without any spillages. Job well done, we’re just not sure what to do with the rest of it.
