Title: Brewing In Sunlight
Post by: tomsawyer on February 04, 2013, 08:22:24 PM
I've been brewing on my deck, and I was wondering if I could skunk a light-colored beer if it is in full sun.

No, some of the skunkable components are created in the fermentation.

Sort of related question about light affecting beer.

I have some bottled beer sitting on a bakers rack near a window.  The blinds are always closed and sheer curtains always drawn. And this beer has already been weeks in the bottle. ( brown bottles)
 Can Light affect the bottles?

Thanks,
Dan

Yes.  They sound pretty protected, but it's not a great place to put them.  Dark is good.
