Bottling Day and Transferred the malty ale

Today I bottled the Thomas Valley Special Bitter. The gravity at bottling time was 1.010 and the yeild was about 21 large (c. 22 ounce bottles) and 8 1/2 twelve ounce bottles.

I used a 3/4's cup of corn sugar for priming. I really disliked the bottling process. It is a very messy. I hope to streamline it in the future but I'm not sure how exactly I'll can make the process more efficient.

I also transferred the malty ale to a secondary, for conditioning. I dry hopped it with a 1/2 ounce of Saaz pelletized hops. The gravity of the malty ale at transfer time was 1.009, a very respectable gravity.
