It's just fine, that's one of the reasons I like brewing so much. Because I can do it outside in the open air.

You need fermentation for skunking.

Hmm... I was under the impression that skunking occurred after isomerization, like any time after the boil...

Either way, it would take much longer than the 3 hours or so your beer would be outside.

Not so.
The basic brewing radio guys did a thing where they left a bottle of hoppy pale Ale, I think SNPA just for like 30 minutes, and could detect skunkiness.

Won't skunk until you have yeast involved. Riboflavin is a catalyst to the reaction that causes skunking.

Really, I'm suprised by that. In a glass or brown bottle? I'll have to download that podcast.

Default Outside - Brewing - Playing with the puppy

I agree with what others have said with having the brewing process outside.
Some of us that use propane burners brew outside for just that reason. Some shade might be nice down there in Sunny Florida.
I took a day off from fishing the Maumee River today to hang out in the sun rototill the garden and BREW BEER.
While I'm here I should look up a recipe that would go good with Walleye.


Thanks for the tip IrregularPulse. I have a lager going that I intentionally plan on skunking just a little . . . Green bottles and Sunlight.
