Gday all. I don't know if you've listened to brulosophers first podcast on their first ever EXBEERIMENT the great Trub EXBEERIMENT. Anyhow they got talking along the lines of how long their hombrewed beer lasted in the keg and how trub may not even have that much impact for us homebrewers since we didn't have our beer sitting for extended periods of time and therefore any off flavours caused from the hot/cold break and hop matter wouldn't have time to develop off flavours. Marshal said most of his kegs are kicked within 6 weeks from racking to the keg saying he had Seven on the go at one time! On average I'd say 6-7 weeks for me depending how tasty it is and if I have any beer thirsty travelers come my way. Now I don't want this to be a Kegging only thread bottle Brewers included how long on (average) I know there is some barley wine makers and sour beer enthusiasts as well. For bottled beer I'd say 3 months and that last bottle is drained longer now that I keg and am too lazy to transfer some to the fridge for cooling. I know bottled beer will take longer to consume because it's carbed later and I don't think it's as Accessable as kegged beer. For example nothing gets much easier than grabbing a beer glass and pulling a lever. Cheers all.
