  2. I just read a comment on the Coast where a guy named Jeff attempted to give everyone a lesson on real ale. He claimed that once tapped, a cask would oxidize in 3 to 5 days giving the beer a distinct sour taste. What??

    For clarification, exposure to air for 3-5 days at cellar temperatures would NOT oxidize to the degree where most people would even notice. Oxidation of beer takes much longer to develop, especially at cooler temperatures. Furthermore, oxidation does NOT give beer a sour taste. The sour taste that develops in tapped casks is from the introduction of beer spoilage microbes (bacteria & wild yeast) via atmospheric air and dispensing equipment.
