[hit enter too early]... If you try blending I would try it first with a small batch first. The beer in the bottles will keep for a while so you have time. The trick would be timing as you’ll still have all the existing concerns, oxygenation, infections etc . The best time to do it would be during fermentation, maybe towards the end of the primary stage. I haven’t tried this but the benefit of being a homebrewer is you can experiment as you don’t have MBA types breathing down your neck about cost.

I have a munich dunkel that didn't carbonate. Super pissed as we did a decoction (first one) and it took forever. Am going to try this today. Local homebrew store guy here in SF told me about this, works for him.

You'd be able to work out how much to add. Calculate how much co2 is in a 1/2 inch cube and go from there. Plus if you had a way to keep the dry ice frozen you could experiment with a couple of bottles.

The beer is pretty hardy at that stage, very little Oxygen plus the alcohol. I think you'd have to try pretty hard to get an infection.

Don't dump it, use it to make a sour and/or blend it with something else.

comment CO2 Bottle inside or outside Keezer?
Thanks, still not sure where to put it. Am using a draft tower so might have it outside so it's easier to check.
