Step 13: Enjoying

Picture of Enjoying

Put the bottles into the fridge the night before you plan on drinking them, and put the kegs in two nights before--you want to make sure your beer is well chilled!

Make sure to enjoy with a friend!  Don't drink directly from the bottle, pour it into a glass, and make sure to leave the last bit at the bottom of the bottle, as there's usually a bit of dead yeast down there.

Also, rinse out your bottles right away, if you plan on reusing them.  It's really easy to rinse the yeast out now, if you let it sit it will cake on and present a real problem later.
