I brewed a beer in october and Ive been so busy with my flight training that I havent really had time mixed with a small lack of interest to bottle it. It still smells and looks good... how bad will that old yeast possibly make it taste? Can anybody shoot me some motivation to get it into bottles?

I just kegged a beer that I initially brewed on April 15th, 2011. All the hop flavor and aroma was gone, so I dry hopped it. Tasted like malt water, but I think the dry hop will bring it back. It sat on the yeast cake and trub for that whole time.

You lucky brewer. Bottle it and enjoy. Believe me if it had gone through autolysis you would smell it.

you should be fine. many have done the same and had no problem. you might want to just add a little yeast at bottling or siphon a little bit off the cake to help you carb.

I've done 6 months and it was fine. I did add yeast when I bottled.

What kind of brew was it? You may have just done yourself a favor. If it was a hoppy beer, you'll probably want to throw some dry hops in and hope it didn't oxidize too badly.

Probably a good idea to add some fresh yeast in with your priming sugar before you bottle.

Pulling this from back in time. Here's a link to that same beer. I think it's even about 16 months not 2 years

The only thing is you may want to add more yeast before bottling just to make sure you have enough in suspension for bottle conditioning.
