hook up the CO2 and try. Whats the worse that can happen. I dont see it hurting it. What probably happened was the head space was more than the previous container and the co2 came out of solution to come to an equalization.

You can definitely re-carb. I've flattened a keg of beer by accidentally freezing it. Thawed it out, re-carbed, no prob.

How would freezing beer make it flat, exactly?
