Some color, some clearing

Fermentation is slowing, yeast sedimentation is occurring. I have been soaking the bottles in an ammonia solution to make the labels fall off, and so far this has worked well (except for the damn Amstel Light bottles, that have plastic labels that are basically superglued on...they could be tricky). The yeast is starting to carry out its full process and sedimentation is beginning, and though the beer is hazy, I'm beginning to be able to see what its true color will be AAAAND...

OMIGODYOUGUYS. The color is beautiful. It's now manifesting itself as a caramelly, nutty, dark amber. EFFING BEAUTIFUL. More updates to come soon! I will be bottling this weekend.
