Homebrew: Bottling and kegging day


Today I bottled the batch of American IPA that I brewed up a month ago with a friend. Bottling went smoothly (from the keg) and the beer tasted very nice already.

I also kegged the Black Lodge Imperial Stout, which was tasting really promising. Lots of roasted malt, coffee, and some dark fruit tones, together with a slight amount of heat (which I guess is from the chili). Gravity had dropped to 1.028, giving the beer an ABV of 9.3%. The beer will bulk age in the corny keg for at least two months, maybe more, before I bottle it.
