49 Bottles and Some On The Floor

I probably could have gotten 50 bottles out of this batch of American Pale Ale. But I spilled a bit and ended up with 49. Live and learn... What I didn't spill of what would have been bottle #50 tasted good, though! Of course, it's the bottle conditioning that carbonates the beer, so it was completely flat and "green" tasting. But I can tell it's going to be great in a few weeks! The first bottle I test will be on my birthday, which happens to be Thanksgiving Day this year. Then I'll leave it alone for another week or so. Some time before then, I hope to get another batch (probably a brown ale) brewing. Here are a few pics from my bottling session on Sunday, Nov. 5th (Hmmm, maybe I should call it Gunpowder Treason Ale...the history buffs and Brits will get that).
