Mild Ale Bottling

2015-10-12 10.29.46The gravity of the ale after two weeks at 18 degrees suggests an alcohol content of 1.3%, which is ridiculous.  I was very suspicious of the OG reading, and the fermentation was pretty vigorous at the start, so I am assuming incompenence and bottling. The proof will be in the drinking.

The beer needs to mature for at least three weeks before drinking, but I used spray malt, so it should continue to improve for months after that.

Alcohol content seems ridiculous, but that OG was very suspicious

Off to May and Brett today to pick up another wine kit and probably a new Blue Boar kit together with a new carboy.
