A "while". *grin*

There is another thing that affects the shelf-life besides these. O2
absorbing caps. If you are going to store beer a "long" time, then you
want to make sure to use them.
Personally I use them for all my batches, since I sometimes put cider in
beer bottles. As well, the difference in cost is negligable for the
comfort of knowing that I don't have to worry as much about it going
Now just how long is that? I don't honestly know but I'll look around to
see if I can find any references.
