Gotcha. Glass it is thanks guys. Another quick one, what is the earliest you can stick a beer in the fridge and drink it ? 2 weeks after bottling? Or at least 3?

You never know...you have to test them. Try your first after two weeks if you'd like.

Thanks guys glass it is. Another quick question, how long after being in the bottles should I drink? I've heard 2-3 weeks. But then how long in the fridge should they sit before cracking them open

When they are young (2-3 weeks after bottling), it takes a bit of time in the fridge for the co2 produced to be fully dissolved in the beer so it's always good if you can stick them in the fridge for at least 24 hours or so. After a bit of time, the co2 is dissolved better throughout and it's not as crucial to keep them in the fridge that long.

That said, I've opened one after being bottled 4 days and chilled for an hour! It was good, but the next one tasted after 20 days in the bottle and chilled overnight was better!

Nicely written. I might have to go pour another cold one after that!
