So this summer I tried to make an IPA, but I over-carbed it and it had an abnormally high amount of floaties in it, so until today, it had sat in my garage fridge bottle conditioning.
Today I decided to try to filter and keg the case of bottles I have, that are now 6+ months old. I pop the caps on the case and slowly pour each bottle into my Ale Pale. Once I have the entire case of bottles in the pale I put the pale in my fridge to cold crash and settle. I leave the top off to try to kill some of the over-carbing.
Then I racked it to my secondary using the built in spout and leave the sediment in the bottom of the ale pale. I then rack the secondary to my keg. I put a mesh cloth over the end of the racking cane with a zip tie holding it in place to help filter even more of the floaties out.
I hit the keg with 15psi to seal it, then bled the Co2 out. I have it at 3psi, just enough to push the pretty much already carbed beer out the tap. I just pulled a sample. It's like a little hop party in your mouth but only mature aged beer was invited. Now I'm thinking about entering it in the local competition in January.
