Just remember to remove the plug when you pour or it could end up in the glass causing a choking hazzard.
Any idea if the beer is fully fermented? If it had been left at ambient temps, I would think it would be safe by now if the pH is below 4.5. IIRC, the mad fermentationist said after 3 months a wild fermented beer should be safe. Googling his site, I didn't see where he said that but you might be interested in this article: http://www.themadfermentationist.com/2011/05/american-lambic-spontaneous.html.
If it tastes OK (spit don't swallow), consider adding fresh wort so you have a 1/2 gallon to 1 gallon of this stuff. Let it ferment at room temp for several months. In the meantime confirm if what I remember about when it is safe to drink these things is correct.
Out of sheer curiosity I would probably see what the pH is. If it was below 4.5 I might taste it.
I like the little snippets of people's lives you get in their beer pictures. It looks like you play rugby and have a bulldog, a little girl, and allergies and are a wallet guy rather than a money-clip guy.
Hop Fu Jr (American Pale Ale), brewed by Kevin (braufessor)
Poured with a nice fluffy head and pretty strong hop aroma. Initial bitterness seemed a little high for my expectations, however it mellowed a bit and this beer is extremely tasty. The more I drank, the more I wanted and now it's gone and I'm all sad.
Comet (American IPA), brewed by Kevin (braufessor)
Solid hop aroma/flavor and pleasant bitterness. I was expecting a little more malt backing, however I've seen the recipe/grain bill and I probably don't know what I'm talking about. Tasty IPA and I would gladly have another.
Mine is all boxed up and will ship to SecondRow_Sean tomorrow. Some experimental APA's, a second-runnings Black Lager and some local commercial brews.
Just moved and got my new report from Ward Labs. Might be time to consider an RO system...That alkalinity is, well, impressive! That has mine beat!
