I just took a gravity sample on a 10 day old IPA. After I got my reading I put it in a PET bottle with a carbonator cap, hit it with 30 psi and stuck it in the freezer. In an hour I'll have a cold, carbed sample to taste.
Hell, sometimes I just drink the entire hydrometer sample that I take before packaging! Last night I had a flat (but tasty) ESB before kegging and a moderately cold Munich Dunkel before it went to lagering. That Dunkel was AWESOME.
So OP, 6 days isn't the worst that could happen... at least you ain't drinkin' outta the fermenter!
