Last night we bottled the Experimental Golden Ale. Final gravity was 1.012, for an estimated alcohol percentage of around 4.75 percent. The beer was a really nice and clear golden color, with the exact flavor (not too malty, not too hoppy) that I was hoping for. I primed the beer with 3/4 cup of corn sugar in one cup of water. Interestingly, the EGA foamed more than any other beer I’ve encountered previously while bottling. Don’t know why this was; I’m curious to see what this will look like when I crack open some of the carbonated bottles.
The final yield was 37 12-oz. bottles and 2 of the big 22-oz. bottles.
