    would it still be ok?

    also i know this might sound like a stupid question but when i put them in the fridge is it ok to lay them on the side or is it recommended to stand them up or would laying them down just re mix the sediment from the bottom

    would it still be ok?

    i have had a brown ale in the bottle for nearly 2 weeks today i tasted it and it was dead set filthy. cant even describe the flavour. i think it is way overcarbonated. gassiness more like a cider although it wasnt refridgerated would it help if i put 1 in the fridge for couple days and try again

    leave it for longer?

    thanks mate ill try cooling it down any suggestions on how? thats really weird you say that because every recipe i have done told me to keep between 21 and 28C

    leave it for longer?

    i do have a airlock but every time ive brewed so far it never bubbled either time so CO2 is getting out somewhere i will check readings tomorrow n see how its going anyways and there is foam stuff at the top

    is it better to use bottled water in beer and do you have to use sterilesed water in the air lock
