    My beer was stored in a mini fridge in a garage. Someone processed fish or something in the garage and now the garage and my beer cans have this lingering corpse smell on them.
    Wtf i didn't think aluminum could even absorb odor like that. How do i get this smell off? Plain water didn't work and soap leaves its taste no matter how much i rinse it.

    Deal with it, probably wouldn't be the first thing you had that smelled like fish.

    Aluminum can definitely pick up odors. My suggestion - pour it into a glass. Tends to taste better that way anyway :grog:

    I ended up doing that with one, but for the other ones, I ran them under running water for several minutes and left them in a clean fridge overnight. It worked pretty well.

    I'd leave it outside and let the racoons have at it, whenever we bbq'd fish they always came at night to check if we left some. :sleep:
