TIPS AND BEERSOURCES
EVALUATING THE IMPACT OF AGE AND STORAGE TEMPERATURE
Back in December 2016, we published an xBmt article on post-fermentation oxidationwith results showing participants could not reliably distinguish between a Pale Ale kegged using either high or low oxidation methods. These findings surprised many, present company included, and naturally led to speculation as to why the beers weren’t more disparate in character. While some claimed the damage had already been done to both beers since low oxygen (LODO) methods weren’t used to brew them, the fact oxidation is a commonly cited issue in beer that isn’t brewed using said methods suggested something else may be at play.
