comment Online retailers for brown nipper bottles (187 mL)?
Good point. There must be a way though. Stone and Delirium paint their bottles.

comment How much light is too much light?
Interesting. I guess I should be more concerned about it. Maybe I should do a test with bottles left outside and see how many days it takes until there's a taste difference.

comment How does bottling in a half bottle effect taste
@baka: I sometimes steal a taste, but if I'm bottle conditioning then the beer is warm and flat—not the tastiest.

This link is broken. Can you fix it or delete the answer?

comment How much light is too much light?
I assumed it would take many days or weeks under fluorescent bulbs or daylight to cause skunking. Do you think there's any risk at all for just a few hours? Especially when stored in bulk like a fermenter, where there is less surface area?

comment How to clean the CO2 line?
Starsan isn't soap and won't do a good job removing debris. (Plus, running starsan and then iodine seems redundant.) Although I agree with you about just replacing cheap parts like lines.

This would be interesting to learn more about. Do you have a link or issue number?

comment How quickly do i need to drink my beer?
I'm not sure I would say "beer will get better with age". It's likely to change a little bit with age. You point out that the hops bitterness and aroma fades over time. E.g. any aroma from dry hopping will probably be noticeably diminished in 6 months.

comment Should secondary fermentation be the same temperature that primary was?
+1. The distinction between "secondary fermentation" and "conditioning" is often misunderstood. Old homebrew books and many starter kits don't help the situation.

comment How can I tell there is mold in my bottles?
+1 for chucking difficult bottles. 12oz bottles are so easy to come by, it's not worth spending ages trying to remove a thick layer of junk.
