Hare's Bride

Today, I went over to the Grimm Brothers to help bottle their first bottle conditioned beer, "Hare's Bride". About a dozen people came by to help with the process and at the end we had around 1230 22oz bottles.

Bottles

It all starts with the bottles, 1440 22oz bottles needed to be sanitized and placed on the bottle tree.

Filling

After being purged with CO2, they went to the filler. This was the slowest part of the process since only three could be filled at once.

Bottle Caps

Bottle caps were placed on the bottles and they are placed back in their box on a pallet.

Finished

All ready for labels; that will be another day.
