Bottling - Best Bitter

On The Eighth Day ...

... it was time to bottle the Best Bitter brewed on the 24th of May. 
Final Gravity was 1.010, ABV 4.6% and IBU 38. I think my recent brews have been a touch over carbonated, which is not good for a best bitter, so I primed this batch with 80g of sugar (about 1.8 vols of CO2) and bottled 21 litres in total. A quick sample tasting delivered a sweet malty flavour, pleasantly bitter with a little bit of hops in the background. I hope that after a couple of weeks of conditioning this will be a really nice beer.
