i've got a few bottles of an iipa that have been stored at room temp for over 3 years and they are still good. if you plan on storing for any length of time make sure of your sanitation practices and don't introduce oxygen at any time.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Thanks Everyone
« on: April 01, 2011, 03:03:14 AM »
I mentioned this in another post but it's sort of buried so I wanted to thank everyone who gave me advice on my first all-grain.  I tried it out last night with some friends and I have to say that I think it's pretty good.  Sure, there's lots of room for improvement but I'm sure that will come with experience. 

In particular I want to thank Denny for all his advice on batch sparging, Tschmidlin for his advice on starters and Euge for his real-time PM advice when things weren't going perfectly.  But also I wanted to thank all of you who weighed in with advice and encouragement. 

Thanks again.
ps.  This beer is a little sneaky.  Goes down very smooth but it certainly crept up on us last night.  Three guys went to work today with headaches.  Must be the water I used...

yea i'm sure it was the water ;D
