I haven't been holding up too well. I seem to have some kind of mild cough that just won't go away. Ugh.

You always run a risk of infection but you still have to do something. When the lid is removed, cover the keg with a piece of plastic wrap just to keep the floaties out. Wash the lid and sanitize. Lube the ring and attach to lid. I even sanitize again at this point. Attach and pressurize. Also, at this point test your posts by spraying with sanitizer and look for minute bubbles. You will be good to go.What he said. You'll be fine. Once you get the lid back on, blast it with 30psi and bleed the valve a few times. Then take the psi back down to your normal pressure.
beersk, I re-read your post and recipe and you specify lager yeast. The heading of this thread
is ALE...so there I did the freudian thing and did not think that one of the lagers I could brew
could be your 1554 recipe since it does indeed use lager yeast. I wanted to brew a maibock
and then something on the yeast cake from that...may just work quite well....and fyi, I have
2 packets of S-189 reserved for these beers.
I just found out 2-Below isn't the best...
Just a hoppy Fat Tire.
To each his own, I'm not knocking anyones taste. But for me, I can olny listen to many chicks ride the Sybian (and my limit on that is about 15 seconds) He makes me sick how he rips on metally challanged people, High pitch Eric, Gary the Retard, etc...As faras I'm concerned, they do not get any lower, or sleezier than Howard. And to hear him tell the audience one more time about how he pretty much, single handedly, invented radio, and he was the first to do everything, UGH! Get over yourself already!!
For a guy who hates Howard Stern, you seem to know a lot about the show
I wasn't aware that there was any excuse for youSierra Nevada's Celebration isnt really a holiday beer, it's just an IPA.
Excuse me, but it most certainly is a holiday beer since it's only available at the holidays! A "holiday beer" doesn't necessarily have to have spices and stuff in it. I fond Celebration to be my favorite of all the holiday beers.

Bottle, but counter pressure fill if it is really big as that will eliminate carbonation issues.
I need some more.
ahem, third person...
Ammonia and water! A quick five minute soak has taken off every lable I've thrown at it - including the foil Avery Brewing uses on their bombers.Isn't that dangerous to dunk your arm into a bucket of that stuff?
Plus, I don't think it's as good as the recipe they used for the last 50 years or so. Come back Old Style!
Ah, but as you likely know, the recipe changed sometime 10 - 15 years ago (prior to the current reversion to the old version), I believe when Pabst bought it and closed down the LaCrosse brewery.
I don't know if the current version is closer to the original, but the Old Style of my high school days is no longer. Still, you can't beat a cold six of tall boys.
Incidentally, Old Style Light is the worst beer I ever tasted. Ever.
