"Basement" Bock Update

A quick update about the Festa Brew "Basement" Bock.

My son and I did in fact begin brewing it on Saturday, September 28th and we racked it on Wednesday, October 2nd. I tasted the sample that we drew for the gravity reading and it was pretty tasteless. Or my palette was really messed up. :) The reading was 1.028-1.030. It was difficult to read.

Based on the usual schedule this is one is probably due for bottling on Friday or Saturday, but I might let it sit for an extra week before bottling.

I built two wooden crates on the weekend. I designed them a little taller than the PET bottles because I'm hoping that they'll also be good for the glass swing-top bottles that I will eventually buy.
