I made a German lager(first lager atempt) for a friend's birthday party, promised him for months and months to have a case of homebrew for his party. Well, the party turned out is about 3 weeks earlier than I thought. The beers been in the bottles and fridge for about 5 days, and I only have another 5 till the party. Hahaha, I know this all seems blasphemous.......but is there anything really negative about aborting the lagering process and drinking it as it is? I mean, I actually drank a glass tonight, and it frankly was not very good(whod have thought) but it also wasnt that bad. We wont all keel over and die from the yeast not being lagered properly will we? I mean, all that will be missing will be clarity, crispness, clean lager taste..right?.. I just dont want to make anyone sick with this lager yeast. I highly doubt that could happen since the fermentation was done as much as it should I believe, but I still thought I would ask. Anyone else been there? Thanks.
