comment How long do I have to finish a keg once it's been tapped?
We use it here mainly for lagers and pilseners. 10+ Plato.

comment Double decoction mash profile for full bodied beer
Just a side note - I am from Czech Republic and boy Pilsner Urquell is not full bodied at all. Pretty watery crap. I mean I have drunk pretty much pilseners here in Czech and Pilsner Urquell is not the one you want, trust me. I am not sure how decoction affects the body of the beer, but you can use melanoid malt for better head and body too, plus some munich malt. That gives the body its fullness from our experience here.

comment Best beer to brew that will last a long time
We have been discussing this with friends and maybe even better for storing the beer for that long are Gueuze, Lambic, Kriek, Biére Champagne / Biére Brut. Or Trappist beers.

I am not talking about 150 IBU IIPA, however whatever style you want to brew, brew it with higher amount of hops and alcohol and you'll do the best you can to try it. I do not think a 12° Plato Pilsener with 30 IBU will last 21 years if not filtered, pausterized etc.

comment Best beer to brew that will last a long time
If you want, I can find some chemical formulas and proves, that it hops really preserves beer from spoiling. I am from Czech Republic so it will take some time for translation of large chemical articles, but I simply know from various resources, that hops and alcohol helps preserving the beer from spoiling.

comment Best beer to brew that will last a long time
Well I do not want to argue much here, but when I was studying brewery at my college we were told about chemical processes while brewing with more hops and it really preserves the bear and defends it from spoiling. Sure, hop flavor will be different after 21 years, but this will happen to any bear. You can age beers for 1-5 years without any problems or worries about dramatical flavor changes, but 21 years. That is a challenge.
