Default Light?? Or Darkness??

When your beer is the primary or in the secondary does it matter where you store it? Does light effect it? Do you think that light can effect the taste of beer?

Light can have a significant effect on beer, esp. In clear containers. Highly recommend keeping it in a dark area or covering it with a box.

Ultraviolet light = Skunk Keep it in the dark.

Keep it in as dark an area as you can.
