Oxygen in Keg?? Ruined??
Back story: brewed american brown ale w/ coffee. Sat in primary 4 weeks racked to corny keg for dry hopping last week and I did not purge with CO2 after closing lid. I know oxidation and all that jazz will produce cardboard flavors. Any chance it will have no effect if I force carb in the next day?? Thx

Just carb it up and go... it should be fine but if not... live and learn!!

It's no too late to purge it. You should have had some CO2 come out of solution and form a layer on top of the beer which will have helped protect it. Purge the headspace whenever you can, and start carbing.

I strongly agree with Juan.
