The samples I made were never carbonated. I just went from primary to the keg, chilled the kegs over night, and hooked up the CO2 to dispense some and begin carbonation.

As far as the bottles go...

The weird thing, though, is that the apfelwein had the flavor... and it was in 6 1gal jugs with 6 brand new stoppers.

I will replace them, though, since I could now have the infection in them.

Yes, I taste all the time. Flavor is there at bottling/kegging, so it's being developed in the fermentation process. Time in the fermenter seems to have no bearing on it. My first batch was...

I want to carb two kegs while I have two other kegs hooked up. I don't want a couple weeks of down time.

Can I hit them with 50 psi and let that absorb for a week?
