Bottled Evil Dog

SG 1.009 bottling

Measured the FG at 1.009 (7.35%) and decided this wasn’t going to go any lower, so along with very minimal activity in the airlock it was time to bottle today. I used 41 purchased 500ml brown glass bottles with yellow crown-caps, numbered individually as follows:

  • 13 bottles with one Cooper’s carbonation drop (375ml target)
  • 28 bottles with two Fox’s carbonation drops (500ml target)

When adding the drops there was a brief fizz of very fine bubbles resulting in a miniature head forming. Two bottles didn’t fill 100% so I marked their caps with a black cross and will try them first.
