    is my homebrew ok????

    Alcohol is a preservative the higher the abv the longer you can store it for. Fortified wines and spirits can last decades, beers maybe a year or two as long as they are not exposed to bacteria or oxygen.

    new member - first post. Started woodfordes Admirals reserve. 17L, SG 1056. I got a bit carried away with the water. I would've rather done it short at 14-15L. Reading these threads helped me through my first - Woodfordes Wherry starter bought from Wilko's. Thanks.
