FYI article/experiment on pathogens in beer
« on: September 29, 2018, 01:21:42 PM »
I ran across this article and thought I'd share. Has some very interesting information for those who've ever worried about pathogens surviving in your homebrew. I know... I'm such a geek LOL But very interesting and engaging stuff. :)

Confirms what we always knew to be true, that both alcohol and hops hurt wild beasts.

The most fascinating conclusion for me:

"Pathogen survival in all beers was prolonged at lowered storage temperatures."

So.... gosh....... not sure what to do with that one!

I know I am going to let my cider sit for at least 40 days, now!
