I would do the keg.  Start with a measured sample and add drops until you are satisified, then extrapolate that to the full batch and add to the keg.

edit:  yeah...what Denny said ( sneaking in under the wire :) )

Only problem is that it is going to be severely underpitched.

I don't see how. At four months old, the smack packs were probably 80-90% viable. 3 * 80 billion / (19 L * 10°P) = 1.3 million/mL-°P.
I'm not sure I can agree with the 80-90% viability after 4 months since they leave the plant at 95%, even though Wyeast guarantees it for 6 months.  And not knowing how it was handled getting to the store and into their fridge, as well as the package not swelling too much.  I think Mr. Malty putting it at 10% is a little extreme however.

I agree with Dave on waiting.  Even with a starter, it takes a couple days for krausen on mine to show.  Only problem is that it is going to be severely underpitched.

[...]Hiney Wine[...]

you can find it in the finer stores, right between the buns!

I used to hear those hiney wine commercials driving to school in the morning.

We used to pre-game with Bud pounders that we could get at the Mobil station right down the street from the dorm.  A guy in our suite had a Mobil credit card his father gave him for gas, but this particular station didn't differentiate what was being purchased.  You know it's bad when you drink the "good stuff" beforehand  ;D

Also was enjoying rooting for the little man from the PNW.  Too bad his defense failed in the final :30.

I really didn't care who won that game but what a great finish!  I imagine the Packers were just a little happy it ended the way it did.

I was always ahead of the curve.  In high school, I drank Michelob Light, while everyone else was drinking Budweiser. 

In college at UVM, we would drink Molson Brador - 6 % ( Canada was only about 45 minutes from school ), although we downed our share of Stroh's 30 packs and stuff we called Hiney Wine, which was a Bartel and James wine cooler ( $12 a case but the next morning made you feel like you had open heart surgery and they forgot to put the heart back in).

After college, Sam Adams ( mostly Boston Lager ) was my beer of choice, and it's been uphill from there.

Bummed out about the Broncos. I was hoping Denver would knock out the Pats.

Go Texicans!

This was in my fortune cookie today!

P.S.  those lucky numbers belong to me and the millions I'm going to win in the lottery...so back off!  ;D

No brewing. Taking the BJCP Tasting Exam in Charlotte, NC. Fingers crossed...

Good luck!

Nothing this weekend...the German Pilsner still chugging away.  I really hate only having room for one fermenter.

I was really hoping for more face time of AJ McCarron's girlfriend in the second half.
Musburger had finished by then so no more video...dirty old man!

Denver's No Mo' Tebow Two Row SMaSH?

To brew a beer for the Pats you have to figure out a way to work cheating into the beer.

Wow, good one  ::)  I wonder how they cheated when they handed it to Denver back in October.

I heard some writer say he could be out 14-18 months...that sucks!  I love watching him play.  I'm sure it all guessing right now so hopefully it is not as bad as it looks.  Anyone remember Theisman?  It reminded me a lot of that when I say it on TV...without the break of course.
