Homebrew: Bottling the V IPA


Today we bottled the IPA we brewed exactly two weeks ago, and it was tasting really promising directly from the fermenter. No burnt or musty flavors in this, so it seems that is was the dirty heating element that was the culprit for our recently failed batches. We bottled approximately 24.5 liters of beer, resulting in 73 bottles. The gravity had fallen from 1.055 to around 1.011, resulting in 5.5% ABV. The bitterness was really smooth in this one, and I think I would classify the beer more as a Pale Ale than an IPA. Hopefully this one will be even tastier when cold and carbonated!
