Beer bottled

Last night the kitchen became a bottling factory. Not quite the Laverne and Shirley assembly line, but pretty interesting nonetheless. Step one, acquire bottles (some were new and some were collected). Then the good stuff was transferred from the glass bottle to a plastic one for bottling (the white gunk is yeast waste and is not transferred). After the bottles are sanitized, they are filled, then capped and crimped with the cool red sealing device. About 5 gallons were bottled with some reserved for measuring the alcohol content, and some had to be tasted. First tastes were quite good, and it will gain some bubbles and be ready to go in about 2 weeks hopefully. Looking good (knock on wood).
