Default Light and the Clear 5G secondary

Crap.

I just realized my clear glass secondary needs to be kept out of the light. I bottle tomorrow. It's been getting flourescent light from the room it's in, and some indirect daylight through the curtains. Should I pitch the batch?

Thanks again for answering question 1,273,005 of my inaugural batch.

No to pitching your inaugural batch! If it's a little skunky just tell whoever tries it you were looking for a Corona type of flavor to it .

I doubt it'll have any problems at all... Go forward hide it somewhere dark or wrap a towel around it.

No, don't pitch it. If it is light struck, it will have a skunky smell. No smell and you're okay. Wrap a towel or dark t-shirt around it and keep it out of the light.

I'm with everyone else. Definately do not toss it. I really think you will be quite pleased with your beer.

I don't have a place to keep them out of the light. So my Carboys wear a Black T-Shirt while they are in use... So far it works well I do have a spot where they are out of direct sunlight but not totally dark... and the room lihgting is incandescent not flourescent. So far the Beer comes out pretty good...

Mine sit in a 25g tubs filled with water (for temp control) and the lids on.



I figured I'd put my 3rd bedroom to use finally.

Oh My Gawd! I can't believe you cut a hole in that rubber maid. Somebody call PETR (People for Ethical Treatment of Rubbermaids) right now!

Jocularity aside tho...good idea that.

I swear I heard a little scream as I stabbed my knife in...


If I had a wife, I think she'd kill me for destroying rubbermaid products. Good thing I'm single.
