So its in a sealed keg. And it has been sitting for 4 months. Its got to be nice and clear.
Force carb it where it sits and start enjoying it.I'd love to, but there's no room in the
keezer. Besides, i...

Assuming the alcohol isn't near the upper end of the yeast's tolerance and it hasn't acquired a
mushroomy or soy-sauce flavor, I imagine it's fine. You might consider dipping the siphon into

I would guess so. Like you said, extended secondary. You could put some in a soda bottle to
test it out.Just wasn't sure if there would still be viable yeast left. I've not doubt there's
yeast in it. ...

I have a beer that I brewed late last year that I really had nowhere to put and it needed some
aging anyway. So, I racked it to a keg, purged it and it's been sitting there, uncarbed, since
12/29. So ...

That almost certainly says that the electrode (or some other part) of the meter is defective

6 months wou...

Update: I don't have a solution but a probably cause. I'm really surprised at the great

What pH buffer ranges are you using, 4, 7 and 10?Also do you rinse the probe going from one
solution to the next and after removing it from the storage soln?I'm only using 4 and 7 as

I bought the meter last fall and got calibration solutions with it. So, they're 6 months old at
the most and have been kept dark and sealed. I've only used the meter a few times, so the probe

My first thought was the meter, but as I said, I calibrated it twice using fresh from the
bottle reference solutions. I'm going to email my contact at the water dept. and see if they
might have an exp...
