Autolysis? That's when the yeast start to cannabalize each other.
Not usually a concern for homebrewers - it takes months and months.

Ok the story...


my boss homebrew from time to time, and he just found a fermenter with a "highly hopped" red ale in it. He thinks he brewed it about 9 months ago, said it looked fine, no mold, and wanted to know to keep it or trash it.

I told him to give it to me :shifty

You mean homebrewer's bogeyman, right? That thing that is in the lager section, yet every n00b quotes it like gospel, but never seems to notice that the last paragraph reads;

Quote:
As a final note on this subject, I should mention that by brewing with healthy yeast in a well-prepared wort, many experienced brewers, myself included, have been able to leave a beer in the primary fermenter for several months without any evidence of autolysis.
Yeah autolysis....

Why?
