Do you BELIEVE in your bottles? Have you got FAITH, Brother?
Personally I kept them in the basement.
well, that is encouraging... that yours didn't explode, that is...
as for my bottles, fortunately i drink a lot of belgian beer, so i've got a lot of thick glass...
i've started an experiment, tho - should tell me what i need to know. I put a bottle in the fridge last night. i figure i'll give it a week or so, check one of the room-temp bottles for carbonation, and then check the one in the fridge. if the one in the fridge hasn't carbed, then i suppose i know that the fridge will de-activate the yeast.
sound about right?
oh, and to quickerNu - mine was at 1.004 at 3 weeks... then 1.004 at 4 weeks... then i bottled... so we'll see... i know it should
get down further, but i wasn't seeing much movement...
