    I have strained at times and have dumped all in the fermetner, and it makes little difference
    to the finished product.So, taste wise, you never noticed more or less hop character by just
    dumping it al...

    So, I recently forgot to sanitize my strainer for a batch of beer so I just poured it into the

    I was referring to the fact that we probably have more chances of contamination in home
    brewing, and from what i've read there are other factors that make the beer less ageable as

    D-kershner,thanks for the temp advice, and i've heard similar advice about making sure to keep
    the keg pressurized with CO2, but what kind of life does the beer have after its tapped? 2-3
    months at mo...

    I brewed it on Oct 21st., kegged it with bottling sugar on nov 7th, and put it into the

    the keg if I pull i...
