In a month or so, we are going to bottle our honeytriple. This beer will have to age for at least a year. But we have 2 problems.
We will probably crack half of them before a year has past, due to impatience and eventual drunkness.
We have limited space in our garage (Where we age our beers), so it won't be very convenient to store them there for a whole year.
So we came up with a brilliant plan. We want to bury
our batch in the yard, and dig it up in a year!
We are planning to bottle the batch in the thickest, strongest glass bottles we can find, stash them in a wooden box, and bury them a few feet under the soil. This way; the beer won't be in our way, the beer shall remain nice and cool (even in summer) and we will not be able to touch it for a year!
-Has anyone here ever tried burying their beer, or ever heard of it?
-Is it a bad idea, is there anything we haven't thought of?
