Saison: BOTTLED!

We bottled our Saison last night and here are my observations:

1. There were still plenty of hops floating around in the liquid. Hmmm...

2. When we started pouring it into the bottling bucket...hoooooo boy did it smell like alcohol. Tequila specifically. Made me a little nervous. However...

3. Our hydrometer reading only shows that the alcohol percentage is around 5% so why does it smell like Tequila???

4. When you have a lot of hops and a lot of malts in your beer this is what the bottom of the carboy looks like:

Ohhhhhhhh BARF.
In conclusion...this will DEFINITELY be a beer we will be drinking out of a glass, not the bottle...
