Oh Myth!!!!Excthuthe me myth!!!

4 months on primary is optimum.....oh wait, that is a myth too!!!!

Better 4 months than 7 days for a beginning brewer in my estimations.

Oy.....Folks have left their beers in primary on yeast cakes for upwards of a year with NO undesirable tastes. Can we quit perpetuating that myth that has been largely disproven by everyone, including John Palmer who inadvertantly spread that, and has since retracted his opinion....

I've left beers six months + and they were fine, and tasted and enjoyed by judges.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

Revvy's one of the cool reverends. He has a Harley and a t-shirt that says on the back "If you can read this, the bitch was Raptured. - Madman

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
