good morning all. yesterday i put my bird in to brine. in it i put onion, garlic, salt, peper, hot sauce and then filled my container with beer. the question i have is how long is too long to leave it in the brine?

I brine anywhere from 8 hours to 24.  I have always used kosher salt, sugar, brown sugar and cayenne pepper along with water.  I have never tried beer, not sure if that will make any difference.
