Bottling Day – Lt. Topper Reports For Duty

Today I bottled the Lt. Topper.  It is a Heady Topper clone.  OG 1.080 and FG 1.020 for a abv of 8.1%.  The true Heady Topper rings in at 8%…o not too far off!  The 6.5 gallon pre-boil ended up as 4.75 gallons going into the bottling bucket.  This left about half a gallon or so of trub between the bottom of the carboy and the bottom of the bottling bucket.  It is unfiltered, so there was lots of tasty greens left behind from all those hops additions.  Now to wait a few weeks and see how it carbonates!
