Not the ones she keeps ripping off you I hope.

You're supposed to have her make you a hat from the foil, or line your cap with it.

For the OP, if you have a basement, put it into a dark corner there. Or cover it in the basement. I use vessels that have zero light (or air) permeability, so I don't worry a lick about it.

I accidentally started in a glass carboy in some ambient/direct light for the first day and a half. Will my ale be skunked or is it gonna be okay now that I have it in the dark?

When you go to drink it, if it tastes skunked, or has a similar off-flavor, at least you'll know why.

I just transfered my 6 gallons of IPA, I put 5 in a glass carboy and covered with a towel, and the other gallon in a glass 1 gal jug uncovered. I look forward to tasting the contrast.

I just did my first batch today, I'm using an indoor grow tent that I got off e-bay for cheap. I have limited space, but it fits in my bedroom. It's dark & the temp. should stay stable. Hope this works, cause I really don't have any other choices!!! Lol!!! Anybody think that this will work?
