Long story short... I had a bad batch (keg...) in september and it discouraged me from any brewing activities until this past weekend. I had a 60 minute clone that I brewed before labor day but never got around to bottling. This past weekend after sitting 5 months on the yeast and dry hops I decided to either dump it or keg it. I drew a sample and to my surprise it was not bad. I kegged it on Saturday and force carbed it on Sunday.... it actually came out pretty damn good.

I've had beers in primary for over 6 months before and they turned out fine. Nothing to worry about....I've got a couple batches that I've not been able to bottle, that I brewed before christmas. Ain't no big thing.

That old idea of off flavors from the yeast is 30 years outdated, and had to do with yeast health and freshness, which modern yeast more than surpasses in both.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.
