If it's been on the yeast for 8 months I'd say you have an issue, but if it's just been
lagering then you're totally fine. He mentions in the show that he kept that keg around for
several years as it ...
Posted in thread: does this look infected to you? on 04-13-2014 at 01:18 PM
If you gave me a beer that smelled fine, tasted fine, and had the proper finish for the style,

Posted in thread: WLP 833 Slow Start? on 04-13-2014 at 01:11 PM
