Sarah, you should refrigerate them fairly soon after bottling them. If I were you, I'd make them the day before gifting them and then have the recipient refrigerate it. I can't tell you that the syrup will truly spoil without refrigeration since I've not done that before, but every recipe I've found for simple syrups say to refrigerate them.

But there's another possibility - if you have a home brew shop near you (or check online), it's likely that you could use a sterilizer in the bottle you're packaging your syrups in. I would think you could pour the syrups in and keep them unrefrigerated at that point. But ask beforehand - if they're selling home brew supplies, they should have more information than I do!


Do these have to go in the fridge right away?? I would love to give them as gifts or favors. Can they be given that way and then refrigerated when opened?


Thank you, Lisa!


love this post! also, beautiful photos!
