We waited and waited, but the day finally came. We chilled a few bottles of the suds and waited some more. I was a bit nervous as there didn’t seem to be much carbonation in the bottles themselves. I wasn’t too worried about any CO2 leaks, as our bottler was pretty rugged, but I wondered if the process of final fermentation was screwy.
Anyway, we brought out the bottle opener…
So far so good. It opened with a nice rush of gas and left an enticing fog in the neck.
It was a bit thin at first, due to the refined sugar we used as a catalyst with the yeast, but it tastes like beer. Like pilsner. Like a decent pilsner. More to come, I promise. God, I am the worst. blogger. Ever.
