Bottled the Wee Heavy

I bottled the Wee Heavy last night. The FG was a bit on the high side (1.018) ; the a.b.v. is about 7%. I am still working on learning how to bottle. I picked up a new tip via the homebrew forums. This time I bottled over the dishwasher door. This makes for less sticky beer on the floor. The big mistake I made this time however was that I tightened the spicket too much and blew out the gasket. I had to speed bottle because the spicket was leaking all over the place. Hopefully I didn't pick up any nasties. The leaky spicket also made for a low yeild, a little less than 2 cases.
