I shook it at 58 degrees for 5 min at 25 psi. This morning when I get pours from it. The beer does not look clear and has sediment in every pour. Tastes flat..

I have 8 hours until the party tonight.. Can I still burst carb it.

when I force carb I hook up at 24-30psi at 35 for 24 hours, vent pressureand set to 10psi to serve and try, if its not carbed to my liking I leave it hooked to the gas, bump it to 24psi again and give it a few shakes, drop to serving pressure and try it again, if its good leave it til serving to settle out


you will have a carbonic twang to the beer, but it will be carbed, I try to force carb only in a crunch... but I still try to have a few days to mellow out the carbonic bite before a party.

Sorry to say, but I think you will have to choose between carbed and clear at this point. You can carb by upping the pressure and shaking. Just be very careful not to overcarb. Of course, if you shake it alot, the sediment will not settle and it will not be clear. I suppose carbed is more important than clear.

I didn't know it would not clear up if you shake it. If I put the psi to 12 and leave it for a week at 38 degrees it wont clear back up?

It will eventually clear , but not by tonight. Was it clear before you shook it?

If you had a beer that had settled and you were about to force carb, would it help to first pour out a beer or so from the bottom to get the sediment out from bottome before you shake it? Or does the sediment sit too low in the bottom and won't get poured out?

It'll clear up some in a week. I did the shake carb method my first keg and noticed it took a good 3 weeks for it to clear up really well.

yes, first pint or few will probably have sediment pulled from the bottom. and should disappear eventually.
