California Summer Ale Bottled

This afternoon I (with the assistance of my buddy Matt) bottled up the California Summer Ale – the final yield was 41 bottles. Three of these were 22-oz., and 11 were 18-oz. So, that’s a lot of beer! The brew has a nice hoppy taste and a golden-copper color. Can’t wait to see how it turns out after a few weeks of carbonation and conditioning!

This will likely be my last batch until next fall – the daytime temperatures in my apartment are just a little too warm now. Fortunately, I’ve got a nice supply of home brew laid away in my closet.
