Bottling Advent Ale

So I’m currently in the process of bottling the Advent Ale.

Right now I wait for the bleach to sterilize the goods. But I’m also boiling bottle caps and bringing sugar to a boil.

So the kitchen smells a bit.

And this is the conversation that just happened:

Anna: Dad, are you burning something?

Sof: Nah! Dad’s making dinner!

Em chuckles in background

Does my cooking usually smell that bad? 😉

    Luke held a brewing session at the shop(Chutes) a few weeks ago.
    7 guys brewed up a Porter, English Bitter, and
    a new & somewhat experimental Biscuit recipe.

    I’m excited about the bitter, as we made that last time around, & it was really yummy.

    The bottling session was last monday night, & I’ve now got 15 bottles down cellar fermenting.

    Great quote!!

    Here’s another I love:
    “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
