Birthday Brew: Part II
We bottled the beer this week. It was a process I’ve never taken part in before, but really enjoyed. We cleaned bottled, sanitized oxygen sealing caps, filled the bottles, etc. If the taste tests are any indications, it’s going to be amazing! Its smooth, dark and has a light coffee flavor. Now we just wait for the carbonation to take care of itself and we’ll do an official taste test on video.
The first bottles will be shared at (or soon after) the baby’s birth. I will drink one per year on my boy’s birthday until I drink one with him at 21. We only made a very limited number so they will be shared sparingly. I’m also working out a storage solution so we don’t lose any while waiting out that 21 years (or 18 if the US drinking age is finally lowered).
The brewmaster for She Bears Brewing, and our Birthday Brew experiment, Jeremy Hylen has graciously agreed to let me share the recipe online. There is only one problem though, I can’t come up with a good name and don’t want to share the recipe until I do.
What’s next? The tasting of course!
