age 6 months in bucket, lid won't seal

<< < (3/3)

I have some buckets of lager lagering in one of my chest freezers. Since the chamber is full of co2 from the primary I'm not too worried about oxidation.

The most frequent times I have lost beer it has been due to acetobacter infections in buckets or in plastic fermentors (you don't want to know what it is like to pop the lid on a 10 bbl plastic conical fermentor and witness an acetobacter infection once, let alone twice). It may be a climate issue, some of you may not have problems with it, but it has happened to me enough times that I try to get beer out of plastic as soon as possible.
