hopefully not enough O2 to skunk the beer.

That wouldn't be skunking you'd be fearing - it would be the beer getting oxidized.

Skunking is a very specific reaction between UV light and isomerized alpha acids that results in the creation of mercapatan, the chemical best recognized as the smelly stuff in skunk spray.

That wouldn't be "pendant" - it would be "pedant."

The rule of thumb is whenever you pull a smartass grammatical move on the internet - you'll make a grammar mistake. :)

You know, you could have made that look deliberate  ;) You had me at mercaptan (oops!!).
