Bottling Day

Took the secondary fermenter out of the fridge about three hours before bottling time. Adding two cups of simple syrup just off the boil to the bottling bucket, letting it sit for a couple minutes and then racking onto it had the temperature in the bottling bucket around 58 F.

Let it all sit for about 10 minutes while I assembled the bottling stage, gave it a vigorous stir and commenced with the bottling.

Tasted the last little bit that didn't get bottled. A little bit sweet from the priming sugar but this one ought to be pretty tasty and will land right around 8% ABV.
