I actually bottled the home brew with my friend Johan a number of weeks ago, but have just gotten around to sharing the pictures.  The beer was tranferred from the keg to the bottles, twenty-one one litre bottles in all.  The whole process was a breeze with very little spillage or complications.  Since we were using the litre bottles provided with the Coopers Kit we used two carbonation drops per bottle.  The bottles were given a shake after capping to mix the drop with the liquid, then left in my cellar to ferment for three weeks.

We celebrated the cracking of the first bottles with a celebratory braai.  The beer is slightly sour and very low in alcohol, but reasonably palatable.  As my friend Johan has remarked “it kind of grows on you”, as it should when you have 21 litres!

We are planning an India Pale Ale for the second batch and have been saving glass bottles to replace these cheap plastic ones.
