Can't be true. I drank 18 pints of my hop-burst APA last night and woke up this morning sick as a dog.

To add to the storage question, dipping the capped bottle in wax should help to ensure a great seal and that the bottle keeps.

It was said a bit tongue in cheek. If acetobacter gets into the batch and turns it sour over a long storage and o2 infiltration from old seals, it will turn to vinegar, but its not a harmful vinegar to your body, and is basically just malt vinegar.
