An attempt at a cranberry pLambic was one of my early brews. Its spent about a year in various carboys. It spent 3/4 a year carbonating. Its been in bottles for about another year.
Frustrating as hell. Mostly the waiting for them to carbonate part. I got so tired of waiting that I bought yeast to repitch a little in the bottle, swirl, and hope the carbonating restarted.
I got all set up to do it, opened the first bottle and it foamed all over me. I guess if I had repitched earlier, I would have ended up with bombs.
Since then, I've been drinking them slowly... savoring. I'm down to my last 12 bottles. I'm drinking #13 now. It still tastes great. I was thinking about cellaring 6 for another year.
Think I'll be okay or do you think I'm pushing my luck on how long they will stay good?
