Bottling Homebrewing

Just Bottled – Vinn’s Java Tour

My wife is training for a marathon….she is out on a 20 mile training run.  So what should I do?  Bottle some beer of course!

I brewed this coffee stout back on April 30th.  After the primary fermentation, I transferred it over to the secondary, adding some double brewed coffee .  I added in some bourbon soaked vanilla beans, then just let it sit in the dark.  The OG was not killer, 1.047 at 81 degrees Fahrenheit, just before pitching the yeast.  I wish I had squeaked out a bit more on the FG, but adding in the full pot of double brewed coffee drops things a bit….. 1.018 at 62 degrees Fahrenheit.  Final ABV 4.1%.  I think next time I need to make a more potent wort to drive the abv up a bit.

This brew was a fun batch, as during the boiling process, my dad stopped over.  It was a New Beer Thursday #nbt.  We threw down a Ghost Face Killah, from Twisted Pine Brewing Company and a Saranac Disruption Nitro.   Nothing better than drinking some fun craft beer while brewing.

Downfall to this bottling event?  I have to get more bottles ready for my chocolate peanut butter stout and dry hopped hard cider that are almost ready!  I guess I have some bottle cleaning work to do!
