you need to wait longer. i'd give it at least 3 months. even then, i'd prime on the low side and/or use thick belgian bottles. wait 6 months if you want to be safe.

looks like everyone is waaay more cautious than I am :-) also, try it before you carb, I do it all the time.

Alright so its been about five months, there is a think film on the beer and the strong sourness has subsided to the point where it tastes like a boring pale with a rhubarb after taste.

So i decided to throw half a sachet of yeast in, any idea what this will do?

the yeast will do very little. after this long there won't be any sugars left for the new yeast to eat. the yeast will go dormant and fall to the bottom.

on the plus side you've insured that your bottles will carbonate. i would prime on the low side, say 2.0 volumes, unless you have thick glass bottles.

So, not sure if anyone cares but after approx 8 months i took the middle 2-3g and carbed them in a keg. Result a sour pale ale that's clear as day. Not amazing not disgusting and totally different.
