Thread Name: BS: Unpasteurized beer
Subject: RE: BS: Unpasteurized beer
Bill, 'not pasteurized' does not necessarily mean there's yeast in the beer. It could be micro-filtered.

Bert - hops do have antiseptic properties but they are weak at best.

Yeast sediment will not make you shit yourself. I have offed literally litres of lees without adverse effects. (touch wood)

Pasteurization of beer in the US is not mandatory. Belgian beer comes in dozens of nuances that may or may not be pasteurized.

Beer is wonderous.
