1 Whirfloc tab (Added with 15 minutes left)
American Ale Safale US-05 yeast

Bottled 7/26/10
Racked to secondary and immediately back into the bottling bucket. Definitely left a lot of the yeast cake out of the bottles, but seems like a lot of work for the results. Should probably do a true secondary if I want to try that again.
46 bottles
FG = 1.01

Meh. Crummiest beer I've brewed. Not horrible, but certainly not anything to brag about or share enthusiastically with friends.
