I have the green apple flavor in my bohemian pils its been lagering a week in keg. Should I add yeast or wait. If so. How do I add the yeast. Do I oxygenate?

I don't know about adding yeast at this point. I would probably give it some more time first. Either way...DO NOT OXYGENATE AFTER THE FIRST DAY OR TWO OF FERMENTATION, much less once fermentation is complete. Unless you enjoy the flavour of wet cardboard, that is.

Good luck!

I wouldn't do anything but leave it alone and let it continue to condition, it's just too young and needs more time, be patient

Regardless, it's not ready yet, it just needs more time. Pitching more yeast will not eliminate acetyldehyde but time will

I get it every few times I transfer to the secondary, but it's always gone by the time I crack a bottle
