I had read in the HBD, that a week or two in the dark at 50F will "cure"
light struck beer. I just finished a six of Newcastle Brown Ale. I recall
that the beer was stored at room temp under fluorescent lights in the store.
The first bottle (1 day of chilling at 50F) smelled skunky. Subsequent
bottles (after a week or so at 50F) did not have a skunky smell. Anyone
else notice this phenomenon?
