After a month or so of research, investing in the some of the cheaper gear and using my first beer kit I've finally gotten to the stage I was waiting for. Bottled beer!
I have to say the racking/bottling process could have went smoother and me and my bro who helped were a bit clumsier than I would have liked but hey ho.
Unfortunately he dropped the airlock inside the beer right as he took the lid off, for some reason he thought it would be a good idea to turn the lid upside down above the beer secondly, you can see some of the levels of those beers aren't the greatest. Third and maybe the most cringe worthy, I don't have an auto siphon so had to use the ol suction/gravity. I used mouthwash but I was cringing the whole time and I will definately be investing in an auto-siphon for my next batch.
Heres hopin' the beer isn't ruined at this stage, that would be a hard one to take for my first one!
Everything else was sanitised and I was apparantly being too anal about the whole process so we'll see but I'm feeling good about it regardless of the hiccups!
Wanted to drop by and say thanks to the community for the wealth of information and input when I had questions!
