Subject: RE: BS: Unpasteurized beer
All that pasteurising does in this instance is kill the yeast. As someone else said it may or may not have sediment. The refrigiration thing is as mentioned earlier to stop the yeasy converting any more sugar to alcohol and CO2. If it had already converted it there would be no effect at all anyway. A recent test showed that it is dead yeasts that can cause more allergic and other unfavourable side effects anyway. Stick to unpasteurised and you should, in theory, suffer less from the (unwanted) effects of beer:-)
