While I have not been brewing much in the recent past, I have been aging a few brews. The first was my melomel
that I brewed earlier this year. It’s been aging for three months in secondary and ended off with a FG or 1.026. It’s pretty sweet, so I topped it off with a few pints of water so that the sugar would get cut a little.
I had a few tastes and I have to say, it’s pretty good. I am carbonating and hope that they carbonation gives a little bite to offset the sweetness.
The second project was the bottling of the Christmas Ale. I decided on a name and made up labels using Bottle Your Brand
. They were fast and the price was decent. The thing that I liked was that they have a template for your label so you don’t have to use one of the generic ones that they have. Once I get a picture of one of my bottles, I’ll be sure to post it up.
Finally, I am trying out Word Press
as my blogging utility. I am playing around with it now to see what I think of it, but if your interested in taking a look, please feel free to check it out at cnybrew.wordpress.com
