Bottled some ale

I finally bottled the ale that I started in March. It is darker than I thought, so I am calling it a brown ale rather than a pale ale. Should still be good. Next time I try for a pale ale I will use much less crystal malt. Final gravity 1.010, so about 5.0% alcohol by volume.

The process of bottling is somewhat involved, and, because of the need for sanitation, finicky. So I always put it off. However, it is not as bad as anticipation makes it. I finished this 5 gallon batch, including the final cleanup, in a little over 2 hours.
