I'm thinking a wheat with orange peel and ginger in the fermentors the slight

That's the easy way. If you like...

Makes sense. I'd be more concerned about if/how they were sealed, than at what temperature,
over a 1-2 year timespan.

Everything gets treated with Star San, inside and out, from the end of the boil until it goes
in the bottle? Are you diluting it to the manufacturer's standards? Do you have any really old

Great picture! Looks mesmerizing. I haven't the foggiest what it is, but I hope your beer still

Pronunciation, I'd guess. Wort is supposedly pronounced more like "wert", just pucker up your
lips (as if you were going to kiss someone) to get the full effect.I know how it's pronounced,
but that's ...
