The beer has been bottled. 6 gallons of beer fills ~57 bottles of beer.
We made a syrup of more 'Wheat Dry Malt Extract' to get carbonation started. 1.24 cups to 2.5 cups of water, heat to warm, pour into carboy, let cool, then siphon beer from fermentation can to the carboy. Clear/sterilize the bottles, then bottle them using a bottling wand.
Now we need to let them sit in the house for 2 days, then out to the pump house/wine cellar they go. After 3 weeks they should be good to drink. We'll see how carbonated they are. I have had the hardest time to get ciders to carbonate properly, I've in fact given up on carbonating ciders. We had some last night, it's a wheat beer, a little hoppier than I expect. We'll see how it tastes in 3 weeks.
I'll get a picture of the bottles shortly for here.
