Bottling: Opus 18, My Bonnie’s Scottish Ale

Posted: June 17, 2013 in Uncategorized

Just a quick note to say that I bottled this one up this afternoon. The final gravity ended up at 1.016, a bit higher than anticipated. I think it was done, though, as the color was good and the clarity was pretty good too.

The hydro sample had a nice sweetness to it, and a golden copper color. I expected it to be a bit darker, but I think it is okay for the style. It’s probably a bit low in ABV, so maybe I’ll have to change this to a Scottish Heavy instead of an export. Used .5 oz of corn sugar in a batch prime, and ended up with 31 clean bottles, including 2 trub.
