Default How much flat beer have you drank?

Kegged a batch of a rye ale tonight and had about a half gallon left in the fermenter after filling up the corny. Filled up a big jar and have pulling pints off since I finished. I ain't throwing that **** away, so instead I am sitting here with a pleasant buzz off flat beer. I guess I should have planned better and had a few bottles ready to go, but this isnt that bad of an outcome. Best flat beer I've ever had.

small-scale consumption like that is ok. when "carbonated beverages" are either carb'd or cold, they can be fine to drink in quantity.

I've drank probably 6 pitchers or so from batches where I was too lazy to sanitize more bottles and the time of day permitted it. Don't forget that you can also just throw it into a plastic container in your fridge and use it as a cooking sauce (beer becomes flat after you cook it right?).

Carbonator and 2L PET bottle. Also good for taking beer to club meetings.

is it possible to leave it in the carboy and then top off the keg after you have drained a little off

I've seen this, but I'm too cheap to buy one! Is there a DIY version of that somewhere around here?

Thanks,

I bottled my IPA this morning. I had a few sips of the flat beer but I'm not one for drinking before noon.

Either way, the beer tasted kind of off and I figured it needed a few weeks in a bottle.

I've had an entire batch of big foot clone come out flat. It was my third batch of beer and I had no idea what I was doing. I didn't prepare the yeast right and didn't pitch enough of it. It crapped out way before it had reached final gravity and didn't make it in the bottle. Had 5 gallons of flat barleywine. I honestly had 2 or 3 bottles since it was expensive to brew, but I decided to throw it out. Flat beer sucks.
