Today I am bottling my latest homebrew. I have a Wheat beer, Red Ale, a Coffee Stout and a Chocolate Cherry Stout to bottle. They were all partial mashes and have fermented for 2 weeks.After bottling they should be carbonated in a week and ready to drink but they will get better if I can wait untill they age for 2 weeks. I am thinking my next brews will be a Blue Moon clone, Oatmeal Stout and a Pilsner.Still working recipes.
