I brewed my 8th batch of beer, a double IPA Best Brew kit, under ideal conditions (mid 60
degree temps) in December, and bottled it over 2 weeks ago after leaving it in primary
fermenter for 32 days. ...

The idea of buying bottles full of beer is a good one. After seeing empty Grolsch bottles on

I took a bacteriology course my senior year in college ('78) and as a lab "experiment" we

Once a beer has been bottled and conditioned is it best to store it for long term (several

of bottle condi...
