Whoo! Finally got to bottling! Man, I have not been excited to bottle something in a long time, if not EVER!
Sadly I think I may have over done the yeast dose. I decided to go with the s-04. From my understanding only a 1/4 packet was necessary to pitch. Well, I did not want to have 3/4 a pack hanging around for who knows how long, so I rehydrated the whole thing. I figured I would just pitch 1/4 of the resulting liquid.
Well, that was kind of difficult as it rehydrated REALLY well. Thick and foamy. So, anyway, as mentioned in my plan I then poured the priming sugar and yeast into a sanitized keg. I then pressurized it and transferred from the keg the tripel was in. Rocking it every now and then to mix well.
I went from pretty much crystal clear beer from being cold condtiioned for a little over 2 months to wicked cloudy.
Ah well, live and learn. It should flocculate pretty well but I anticipate a good layer of sediment.
...hopefully no bottle bombs as I did bottle a few regular long necks for possible competition purposes.
