The day of beer tasting finally arrived and the one of the bottles was opened. However, we didn't realise that you're not supposed to tip up the bottles but to keep the yeast settled at the bottom so the first couple that were opened were undrinkable.
We were then told by a friend who has done this before that it's best to pour it into a glass and leave the yeast in the bottle so it's now drinkable apparently. Well, drinkable enough for The Boy to take a box of 20 around to a friend's to split between a few of them.
So overall it was a success (although we all though it wouldn't work) and no doubt there will be more beer brewing in the flat again soon.
