Quick question: I made a stout and am about to keg it...the problem is that I don't think it fermented out the sugars...the beer is not contaminated but not sure what to do with it.....any ideas?

What is the gravity and how long did you ferment with what yeast at what temp(yeast starter?). Did you get a head on the beer and see activity?

If you don't have a hydrometer, get one. There is NO other way to be certain.
