Storage times?


BrewArt Rookie
How long can you leave a brew in the keg for? Secondary fermentation takes 2-4 weeks, but then after that; does the beer degrade over time? Get better? Both? What happens if it is left for 6 months? A year?

Had heard 6 months is the maximum however having said that I keep my kegs in a dark place constantly and generally speaking cooler.

Have had some 6 months old and no problems at all, do have a stout sitting the cupboard for what will be over 12 months by the time I get to it so keen to see how that ends up.

As a general rule certainly gets better but have yet to establish how long is a maximum.
