I got an annoyance issue here. I have a Cornelius keg 19lt and 15-16 liter batch of Wit-beer almost ready to go, but poorly timed.
Issue is I currently don't have the CO2 regulator or Tank. Reason for this is currently I shouldn't really be dropping money to get it within the near future (2 months) and due to other commitments I can't really be spending time bottling either over the same period.
I'd like to just dump the whole lot in a keg. Ideally I would like to purge the keg with CO2 before adding the beer.
- Will 15ltr of beer in 19ltr tank have too much oxygen in the headspace, and spoil?
- If I prime and pull pin periodically could I successfully force out the oxygen from the headspace and force carb later if required, when I get some gas?
- Shall I store my wit-beer in a fridge for 2 months and then stir all the sediment back in, when I get some gas?
- Shall I just bottle the damn thing?
