*A few hours later*

*The morning after*

*Bottled today, 18th April 2009*
Original Gravity (OG): 1066
Final Gravity (FG): 1020
Alcohol Content ABV: 6.04%
After a sneaky little taste while bottling it tastes quite sweet, looks like a different yeast might have chewed through the malt a bit better, but 6.04% is pretty fair. I just hope my 1/3 Tsp priming sugar has enough viable yeast to carbonate.
