Julie and I bottled the Christmas Spice Saison today to the background of Christmas Music!! We also decided to bottle a few ‘splits’ (375ml bottles). Just because they are cute, and I can test out readiness without the need to open an entire 750ml bottle. The little ones are still belgian style bottles, corked and caged. They just look cooler that way.
Bottling provides two opportunities:
- I can test the final gravity, which means I can finally tell the Alcohol by Volume (ABV).
- We can taste the beer (warm and flat, but taste nonetheless).
So I have two things to report:
- 8.0%!!! WARM Christmas Spice Saison indeed!!!
- Tastes great so far!!
