…If you carbonate/condition/store in a DARK PLACE like a closet or in a box, why does it matter if your beer is in a very dark bottle. I like to see the color and clarity of my beer as it progresses. Will it really “skunk” in the mere minutes that you transfer it from the dark place to the fridge to chill? Will the light in the fridge “skunk” it? (Has anyone REALLY checked to see if it goes off when the door shuts!!!)
I have a keg setup and hate bottling, but when I do, my favorites are the ones I put in clear bottles. Plus, if I am gonna serve a homebrew to a newb to the hobby, It is cool to let them see the beer and the settled yeast and explain the process.
