Copper Ale is Bottled

Finally got around to bottling the Copper Ale last night so it should be ready for drinking in about a week and a half to two weeks.  Also helped Evan and Meg brew up another batch of beer.

One of the cool things about this brewing is that I didn’t use any 12oz longnecks (your standard beer bottle) but instead relied on 32oz and 16oz grolsch-style E-Z cappers (they have these sweet flip capping system so you don’t need bottle caps), I also used a few 22oz longnecks (these ones did need to be capped).  So all around I have less filled bottles of the Copper Ale than I had for either the Irish Stout or the Wheat Beer, but all the bottles are of larger volume, which is cool.  I personally like the larger bottles because then you can share with others if you want, or oyu can just have a little bit more yourself.  It is of my opinion that a 32oz grolsch is pretty good for one person for all nigh, if oyu are not aiming to get real buzzed (it is just shy of 3 regualar beers).

I’ll let everybody know how the Copper comes out in a couple of weeks.  Heres hoping for delicious.
