Not bad at all, but it leaves out a very important step: Sanitizing your fresh water system after clearing the antifreeze!

Check that your water pump intake valve is closed (you may have opened it to suck in antifreeze from the bottle).
Also, check your hot water bypass is off, if you're getting cold water flowing but mostly air from the hot.

That is what it was, did not turn the valve back the other way,
So Now I am not getting anything out of the hot water line,
The hot water tank was drained in the fall,
All the valves look right ?

Double check by having a look at the site below and make sure it's in "Normal flow".
