Bottling: il Prete Rosso

Posted: April 28, 2012 in Bottling Notes, Recipes

Today was the day to bottle up this Strawberry Blonde Ale. The final gravity measured out at 1.016, very close to where Qbrew put this one. I followed my usual procedure, but upped the corn sugar to 2 oz. For this one, I also had to add the strawberry extract. I put this into the bottling jug after the sugar water, but before the wort. I think it mixed up pretty well, since the smell was pretty good going into the bottles. I got 22 bottles out of this batch again, including the trub bottle.

Four more weeks will make this one ready just in time to celebrate summer vacation!
