So I got about a 1/4 left of a Sierra Nevada 1/2 barrel i picked up for a party we had recently. Originally tapped on Sat night. We used one of those standard picnis taps witht he hand pumps. It's been in the fridge since and I'm thinking I could transfer this to a corny and put it on gas to re-carb it up a bit

Anybody ever try this? One concern i have was that i was wondering if all that hand pumping that was done during comsumpion could have areated the beer a bit and potential stale this thing out...thoughts?

With all the O2/bacteria that got in there while hand pumping it I'd say that keg is toast.

+1 When I built my kegerator I made sure that I picked up the homebrew to commercial conversion kit from keg connection so that I could easily go back and forth between commercial beer and homebrew.

The answer that is the most homebrew is RDWHAHB! Throw it in a corny and get back to us with the results.

I don't know about you guys, but when I was in college and a party didn't kill a keg we drank it until it was gone. Sometimes that could take a week!
