I could cover the interior light, filter the UV and leave it on inside? Does anyone know if these work? I know one of you said you own them but have yet to use them.

I would be JUST as concerned when it's in bottles. This is when the commercials get skunked. Go buy some Pilsner Urqell at the grocery store. I guarantee it wasn't skunked like that when PU bottled it.

True, but I more meant that when it's bottled it's in brown bottles which helps. Also, they are usually in a box and not as close to the light. I didn't mean they weren't at risk when bottled, rather, I meant that when bottled in my setup they are not at as much risk. The carboy however sits on the bottom near the light.

I know there's a debate there for some people, but I personally believe it affects it. I lager as well as store my hops, yeast, and beer in it.

Then I found out that you can get these fluorescent tube shaped led lights that just snap in like a normal fluorescent (no ballast mods or anything) and then rock and roll with led light. So my question is can I switch out the fluorescents in the fridge's interior and use these LED's without trouble or will the same problem occur. I'm imagining that they give off far less UV but I'm hoping that this panel of experts before me might have a definitive answer.

Thank you in advance.
I have a very high intrest in those fluorescent tube shaped LED lights that can snap in like a normal fluorescent light. Do you have a forum site or email address to the manufacture of these LED lights? Any heads up or direction to help me would be great. Thanks in advance. Carl......

BrewBeermer,

Here's the url. These bad boys are pretty damn expensive, what with being a new technology and all that, but a neat concept. Still not sure what I'm going to do for my application, but maybe this will help with yours.

EverLED - LED Upgrade Replacement

Hope that helps

Thanks for the LED address. A little on the expensive side for the use I had in mind plus needing 14 seperate lighting units. I wanted to get away from those ugly black plastic 12 volt garden lighting units that burn out all the time mounted under the rain gutters around the property. I have 1 1/2" x 10" long thin brass tubing with end plates that will be a 270 degree shield, inside a strip mounted with 18 white super bright 25 degree angle LED's for night lighting around the property. Simple small and clean looking. I'll end up building my own LED light strips and change out the fixtures. Already wired with #6 awg years ago. Thanks for your efforts.

I just started researching this myself with the concern for lighting in a retail "bottle shop" atmosphere. I came across an article which points out
Quote:
...adding that the blue light necessary to obtain white LEDs causes "toxic stress" to the retina
.
Basically, it's my understanding from the article that "white" LED's emit a whole bunch of the Blue light that is most harmful to hops. Considering this, I'm going to try to find out if yellow or even red LED's might be a better alternative... or if it's even a possible and pragmatic solution?
This is the full article from LED Magazine: http://goo.gl/Mm6iZ2
