Maybe not the best technique, but maybe not a disaster. The real key to not making terrible
beer is sanitation. As long as you used a good no-rinse sanitizer like StarSan on the vessel
and funnel you ...

ah ok i guess i assumed it was the same for everything in a clear bottle beyond millerMost
likely you're right. That's probably why Heine does it.

I thought they put it in clear bottles because they use hop extract which doesn't have as many
of the skunking compoundsAs far as I know, that was Miller. It also gives them a foam stand

I love my 15g Boilermaker. If you can afford it, it is worth the extra money. I think the only
