Bottled Steam Beer

“The Sun Has Left Us On Time Steam Beer” has been bottled in an array of different shapes and sizes of bottles, including a one gallon jug:

  1. I’ve never tried bottling in a 1-gallon jug before. I thought I heard something about them not being able to hold the pressure? In any case, I’d love to be the lucky guy who grabs that one from the cooler. Cheers!

  2. Yeah, that’s nuts. Good job Timmay.

    Great name too!

  3. Good work Jesse! The one gallon jug will be suspicious. I’d say crack a regular bottle after 2 weeks to see how much carb there is. If its agressive, stick the one-gallon jug in the fridge. It does look like a beefy jug though – I hope the lid is tough nuts too.

    Though…. what up with the corona bottle? This is sort of a sin, no?

    Did you also bottle in those little jam jars? If so, that is amazing! Just open and drink, perfect bottle/glass combination..

    Also, how does it taste? You must have sampled it during bottling??

  4. Looks nice! Good job! Gotta bottle or keg my recent batch soon. Can’t decide which way to go with this one…

  5. We’ll see how to jug goes.. I’ll let you know of it explodes!
    No jam jars, although that’s a good idea, those are just glass juice bottles with the same lids as the jug, again, we’ll see how it goes. Figured I’d test it out because if they work, they’re very convenient!

    It tastes pretty good, kind of cidery, it’s got potential, hopefully the yeast clean up after themselves a bit over the next few weeks.

    I primed this one with 3/4 cup corn sugar. I’m going to use 1 1/4 cups Blackstrap molasses for the imperial stout this week.

    Oh, the Corona bottles, apparently they’re not a sin. They seem to be the home-brewers bottle of choice out here. As long as they’re stored in a dark place I think they’ll be fine. When I went to pick up bottles at the party store there was a full case on top of the pile, so instead of picking through to find other non-twist-offs I thought I’d just try it. I’ll let you know how it goes.
