Yes it's true BUT only if there is an air leak somewhere. As long as you have a good seal on your airlock, keep it filled, or have your blow off tube under water, then you should be great. You shouldn't have to worry about oxidation for your beer.

So a couple weeks bottled and here it is. Story goes...I gave a bunch away as gifts to neighbors and family etc, well I'm working on my dirtbike and my neighbor strolls over and says "hey jack of all trades, you made this?" I said "dude it's not ready man, give it a couple more days minimum!" he states that "BS dude try this, it's delicious!" I do and to my amazement it's great! I'm talking superb delicious beer! It wasn't even cold! I am not going to touch the remainder that I kept for myself for at least a month or two. Seriously amazing brew. Northern Brewers winter warmer. Get this extract kit now! Superb
