Default Pilsner Urquell Clone might go down the drain!

so i made a Pilsner Urquell Clone about 7 weeks ago, i put it in a keg this weekend and set the PSI to 20 to set the lid etc. and let it sit well last night i poured a glass and it has a very stong butterie flavor! ugh i hate the butter taste lol i couldnt even finish the glass! I did a dicetal rest for 24 hours but i guess i didnt let it sit long enough!

think the strong flavor will fall out with time or should i just dump it because it makes me want to puke!

Sounds like your diacetyl rest was completely ineffective. All is not lost since it's in a keg. Take it out of the fridge, pull up the ring on the relief valve, and let it sit at room temperature for a few days. If you're worried about leaving the relief valve open, cover it with a bit of aluminum foil.

wouldnt all the bad tasting yeasties fall to the bottom of the keg and eventually be sucked out the tap and into my glass?

There won't be much yeast at all that precipitates out. Even if there were a bit of yeast at the bottom of the keg, it would disappear after the first few pints.

Consider the alternative...buttery, gross beer.

At the same time, a 30 day lagering is still way young. I'd agree it's diacytel but it's green too.

By taking the keg out of the fridge, and releasing the pressure are you just doing another diacetyl rest?

I don't do AG, but I understand the rest has to be done at room temp that's why you're taking it out of the cold.

I pour out the real stuff. I can't imagine a clone being any better...
