I have a keg of Imperial Stout which has been aging for more than a year now and it is currently on Beer/Gas at 29psi in my basement. Is it possible to release the pressure and open the keg to check the condition of the Stout prior to tapping it?
My concern here is that I had it tapped originally, but it was too young (tasted great, but had a slight chemical type flavor to it).
I would of course purge the keg after opening and inspecting it.
I guess I could just throw a picnic tap on it and try it huh! Did I just answer my own question here?
