Keg location and odor

Recommended Posts

Do I need to worry about odors in the environment where I do my fermenting? I have a closet in the basement, but it smells like the other stuff I keep in there - dog food and dryer sheets. Will this be an issue, or is the LBK a closed system? I don't want any funky stinks poisoning my first batch.

Beer comes first! If that closet is your best location for temps, shelter from light, etc., move the other stuff! :woohoo:

Yeah, definitely move it. I don't think these LBK's will absorb odor, but plastic does have a knack for it. Why chance it?

As long as you keep the lid on the LBK it shouldn't be a problem as the yeast is producing CO2 an, as a result, is actually developing a very slight positive pressure inside the keg that should keep the bad air and nasty smells from entering it.

But I'd still move it or the other items in the closet just to be safe.
