Bottling - Another Pale Ale

More Bottling Fun

Time to bottle the pale ale made last week. It's been in the fermenter for eight days, dry hopped for the final three days. There had been no apparent airlock activity for four days so I took a couple of gravity readings over two days using my recently acquired specialised sampling system (or turkey baster as it's more commonly known) and both results were the same. The FG reading was 1.014, a bit higher than expected (1.011) giving an ABV of 4.2%. I tend to always aim for a theoretical ABV of 4.5%+ knowing that I will still get well over 4% even if things don't turn out exactly as planned.
